The rapid changes affecting America and the world have been led by economic and technological forces. The cultural dimensions of this change have been largely ignored in the process. Without significant advances and innovation in the realm of culture and value, the huge economic and technologcal gains of the recent past are exposed to great risk. In the face of these changes and challenges, this book asks: are we facing sunset or dawn? The authors find a clear vision and new significance in the Declaration of Independence, especially in the idea of the pursuit of happiness. The book connects emerging global change with the pursuit of happiness and shows that change today is not only consistent with this principle, but in fact caused by it. The book also provides a fresh understanding of the roots of current fears about the future, as well as those who criticize America's culture and society. The authors find that these efforts to create a critical, counter-narrative to the pursuit of happiness are derived from systems of ideas that are no longer defensible in today's world. held hostage by civic vandals; the need to radically rethink and renew the relationships among business, government, education, and non-profit institutions has never been more pressing.
