Dante Chinni, Rush Kidder

October 26 . 2010

In a climate of culture wars and economic uncertainty, the media have often reduced America to a simplistic schism between red states and blue states. Journalist Dante Chinni teamed up with political geographer James Gimpel to launch the Patchwork Nation project, using on-the-ground reporting and statistical analysis to probe American communities in depth in Our Patchwork Nation. Then, nearly one-third of the nation’s parents, when asked to identify the biggest challenge to parenting today, pointed to ethical and moral issues. In  Good Kids, Tough Choices, Rushworth Kidder explores how parents can overcome these obstacles and effectively support and lead their children from early years to late teens.
