The Coddling of the American Mind
Something has been going wrong on many college campuses in the last few years. Speakers are shouted down. Students and professors say they are walking on eggshells and are afraid to speak honestly. Rates of depression and anxiety are rising. How did this happen? First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt investigate the many social trends that have intersected to cause the spread of these new problems on campus-from the rise of fearful parenting, to the new world of social media that has engulfed teenagers, to America's rapidly rising political polarization and dysfunction. This is a book for parents, teachers, college students, or anyone who is confused by the growing divisions within American society. Book jacket.
