Summary
Moral Freedom reveals the advantages and painful difficulties of living in a society where, for the first time in history, rather than simply accepting strict conventions, each individual struggles to forge a moral life. Shedding light on Americans' guiding principles are Wolfe's findings in eight very different communities: from the Castro district in San Francisco to Tipton, Iowa, a classic American small town; from Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, to Fall River, Massachusetts. Hard on the heels of political and economic freedom, Wolfe concludes, an exhilarating and unnerving new era of moral freedom has indeed arrived
