Reviews

"Bowling Alone provides important new data on the trends in civic engagement and social capital. . . . It is a formidable achievement. It will henceforth be impossible to discuss these issues knowledgeably without reading Putnam's book and thinking about it."--Paul Starr "The New Republic"
"An ambitious book . . . Bowling Alone is a prodigious achievement. Mr. Putnam's scholarship is wide-ranging, his intelligence luminous, his tone modest, his prose unpretentious and frequently funny."-- "The Economist"
"Crammed with statistics and analyses that seek to document civic decline in the United States. . . . Bowling Alone is to be commended for stimulating awareness of civic engagement and providing a wealth of data on trends in contemporary America."
--Francis Fukuyama "The Washington Post"
