Free download The Left Behind Read Ó The Left Behind ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Download ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ¼ Robert Wuthnow How a fraying social fabric is fueling the outrage of rural AmericansWhat is fueling rural America's outrage toward the federal government Why did rural Americans vote overwhelmingly for Donald Trump And is there a nuanced explanation for the growing rural urban divide Drawing on than a decade of research and hundreds of interviews Robert Wu. Because the author a sociology professor at Princeton grew up in a tiny town in Kansas this book displays a careful sympathetic ear for life in small town America He acknowledges that he is now part of the East Coast liberal elite but his study is consciously nonpartisan In the introduction he notes that the standard theory about the cause of rural unrest is economic decline resulting in white male anger He thinks that is too simplistic He says that small towns have a culture a moral community which to them feels threatened Here is his definition of a moral community I do not mean this in the vernacular sense of moral as good right virtuous or principled I mean it rather in the specialized sense of a place to which and in which people feel an obligation to one another and to uphold the local ways of being that govern their expectations about ordinary life and support their feelings of being at home and doing the right thingsA moral community draws our attention to the fact that people interact with one another and form loyalties to one another and to the places in which their interaction takes place These enduring interactions and obligations and identities they entail constitute the community as a home Understanding communities this way differs from the notion that people are independent individuals who form their opinions based strictly on their economic interest and their psychological needs They may be rugged individualists But they are not fundamentally that Spend some time in rural America and you realize one thing people there are community oriented page 4He continues his explanation on page 6 saying The moral outrage of rural America is a mixture of fear and anger The fear is that small town ways of life are disappearing The anger is that they are under siege The outrage cannot be understood apart from the loyalties that rural Americans feel toward their communitiesThe book then explores aspects of the moral community which seem to be threatened He says people living in small towns have a philosophy of not being a burden but that if someone falls on hard times neighbors rush in to help The organization through which help is given is usually the church Washington is viewed with suspicion On one hand rural Americans feel ignored and that Washington doesn t offer help when it is needed On the other hand Washington is viewed as intrusive making problems worse He says there is a feeling in a small community that everyone living there is the same They aren t really of course but they make an effort to fit in If they are wealthy they live below their means and interact with others in the community in an eual way There is also not a strong distinction between white collar and blue collar jobs People living in small towns are aware of the downsides such as being far from health care but think the positives of living there outweigh any negativesThe author lists some of the threats to rural towns as being population decline leading to an older population teen pregnancy drugs lack of jobs and a conseuent brain drain and a growing cultural divide He sums this up by saying It is the almost inexpressible concern that their way of life is eroding shifting imperceptibly under the feet and being discredited and attacked from the outside that poses the greatest threat page 79Having moved to a small town less than a year ago I found this slim book just 164 pages of text excluding the notes reading list and index interesting and thought provoking It has made me look around myself with insight which is never a bad thing

A solid even handed report on a years long project in which Americans living in rural communities were interviewed about their views of politics race morality immigration government and a host of other topics Wuthnow seems to have been very discreet about his own opinions I had the feeling that the respondents felt safe about expressing their thoughts Doubtless certain things were held back or toned down but a picture nevertheless appears of what factors are most important in shaping the world view of this diminishing and overwhelmingly white and aging cohort The Left Behind is not Hillbilly Elegy or Strangers in Their Own Land or White Rage or any of the other worthy entries into trying to understand what America is in these strange times Nor does it try to be of their ilk Rather it is a uiet sober and respectful report on rural communities in short a valuable addition to their number

Worthless book If you are an adult human being who hasn t been in a coma for the last 20 years you will learn nothing from this book If you read this book and felt you learned something you probably have bigger problems to deal with than why rural America feels left behind in the 21st century My biggest issue was that the author who admits in the epilogue to being part of the liberal elite basically spends the entire book acting as an apologist for rural America for being bigoted xenophobic homophobic misogynist and every other trait favored by conservatives Do we really not understand that rural white America dislikes Hispanics coming into their town because their town has always been 99% white Who doesn t know this But importantlyit s not an excuse The book states over and over again how rural America feels comfortable in their small towns in their communitieshow hard is it for them to understand that the entire WORLD is a community and if everyone treated everyone else with the same amount of respect we would be halfway to solving all of the world s problems
