Summary: ''We get in this report not only an evaluation of what the limitations of human development are in the United States, but also how the relative place of America has been slipping in comparison with other countries over recent years. In the skilled hands of Sarah Burd-Sharps, Kristen Lewis, and Eduardo Borges Martins, the contrasts within the country& mdash;related to region, race, class, and other important distinctions& mdash;receive powerful investigation and exposure. In these gro
wing gaps we can also see one of the most important aspects of the souring of the American Dream, which is so much under discussion today. I do not doubt that The Measure of Americawill receive the huge attention that it richly deserves.'' -- Amartya Sen
