Mr. Baker talked about his book America’s Crisis of Values: Reality and Perception, published by Princeton University Press, about the persistence of traditional American values. The author argues that despite public opinion polls and the beliefs of many politicians, America has not lost its traditional values. Mr. Baker uses data from the World Values Surveys to show that the United States is in good standing in relation to most other countries and societies. Among the issues he addressed were current perceptions about cultural values, surveys findings on the definitions of moral and cultural values, and the implications of the widespread and commonly held values on policy issues. Following his remarks he answered questions from members of the audience. close
