Summary America has long been famous as a land of plenty, but we seldom realize how much the American people are a people of plenty -- a people whose distinctive character has been shaped by economic abundance. In this important book, David M. Potter breaks new ground both in the study of this phenomenon and in his approach to the question of national character. He brings a fresh historical perspective to bear on the vital work done in this field by anthropologists, social psychologists, and psychoanalysts. -- Back cover.
