American Society: Definition, Attributes

Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“America is another word for opportunity.”

Charlie Chaplin:

“I felt at homeĀ  in the States–a foreigner among foreigners.”

The sociologist C. Wright Mills (The Power Elite) has said:

“We need to characterize American society of the mid-twentieth century in more psychological terms, for now the problems that concern us most borderĀ  on the psychiatrist.”
