They should have called this book "conflict resolution of a suburb

A valuable contribution to the literature on social control, this study of conflict management should attract general readers and scholars alike. They should have called this book "conflict resolution of a suburb. I was expecting more information about what is and is not considered socially acceptable in the suburbs. That was only dealt with from the locus of conflict. Conflict is literally the only thing the author discusses.

Surrounding all major cities in the United States are numerous smaller communities collectively known as suburbia. The most popular place of residence in America, the suburbs are peaceful and tranquil environments, where civility prevails and disturbances of the peace are uncommon. Drawing on research, observation, and hundreds of in-depth interviews conducted during a twelve-month study of an affluent New York City suburb, M.P. Baumgartner reveals that the apparent serenity of the suburb is caused by the avoidance of open conflict. She contends that although nonviolence, nonconfrontation, and tolerance produce a superficial social harmony, these behaviors arise from disintegrative tendencies in modern culture--transience, fragmentation, weak family and communal ties, isolation, and indifference--conditions customarily viewed as sources of disorder, antagonism, and violence. A kind of moral minimalism pervades the suburbs, a disorganized social order that, with the suburbs' rapid growth in America, promises to be the moral order of the future. A valuable contribution to the literature on social control, this study of conflict management should attract general readers and scholars alike.
Comments to eBook The Moral Order of a Suburb
Landamath
An underrated classic in the study of human conflict and a great example of modern field research. Baumgartner explores the patterns of conflict and conflict management in a US suburb. With a keen eye she describes how people handle their differences, whether with lawsuits, calls to the police, gossip, the cold shoulder, divorce, talking it out, and more. What elevates all of Baumgartner's work is her ability to make cross-cultural comparisons and identify how the patterns she observes fit into larger patterns of human behavior. Reading this book you not only learn about how people in the suburb handle conflict, but also how their behavior is similar to and different from other times and places, and how people's social conditions shape their moral life.

I read this book years ago and have gone back to it many times. It's message about suburbs is vital and right-on. Her thesis of suburbanites nestled in their homes desiring to avoid conflict and confrontation and delegating that role to its "champions," the police and other members of officialdom has been proven to be right-on for me in my little suburb outside Philadelphia. Not facing the crime challenges of city cops, suburban champions are delegated to keep a vigilant eye out for "strangers" and errant youth. A wonderful, tidy study with much food for thought.
