A Macat Analysis of Robert D. Putman's Bowling Alone: The Collapse and Revival of American Community

1 h 31 min
Social capital—the relationships between people that allow communities to function well—has long been recognized as the grease that oils the wheels of society. It facilitates trust, creates bonds among neighbors, even helps boost employment. In his 2000 book Bowling Alone, American sociologist Robert Putnam argues that Americans have become disconnected from one another and from the institutions of their common life, and investigates the consequences of this change.

Looking at a range of indicators, from membership in formal organizations to the number of invitations being extended to informal dinner parties, Putnam demonstrates that Americans are interacting less and creating less “social capital.”

Putnam did not invent the notion of social capital, but he was the first to take a broader view, looking at the social capital generated by people’s engagement with the civic life of their towns or cities.

It would be difficult to overstate the impact of Bowling Alone, one of the most frequently cited social science publications of the last half-century.
