The Children of the Lonely Crowd
Botstein, Leon
Change, 10, 5, 16-20,54, May 78
Riesman's classic book, "The Lonely Crowd," has had an enormous impact on the way American society is talked about and understood. His central thesis that Americans were becoming increasingly "other directed," more concerned with how they compared with others, and less "inner directed" is examined in terms of the role of academe in the 1970s.
