Overview

In a previous book, The Decline of Comity in Congress (1993), Uslaner (government and politics, U. of Maryland, College Park) linked the increasing incivility in Congress to a decline of trust among Americans. In this new work, the author centers on the issue of trust itself, with a particular focus on why people trust strangers, how and where such trust is significant, and reasons for the decline in trust in the U.S. Primarily a study of trust in the U.S., the text also examines survey data on trust in other counties.
