"Belonging in America" gives voice to unspoken conventions and silent understandings and asks why our culture draws the lines it does between home and work, family and friends, or humans and animals. Throughout her fascinating book, Constance Perin shows us the systems of meaning through which contemporary Americans create social order and define their relationships."
