Summary
"Public Opinion in the United States tracks developments in American society since World War II through the lens of public opinion. The authors assess national public opinion poll data from 1945 to 2008, targeting opinions about African-Americans, Jews, Muslim-Americans, gays and lesbians, immigration, abortion, and affirmative action. The volume provides a unique portrait of American society and how it has changed over the last sixty plus years."--BOOK JACKET
