Andrew J. Cherlin

Johns Hopkins University

Cherlin will write a book currently titled The Rise and Fall of the Working-Class Family that examines the social consequences of increased polarization in the U.S. labor market over the last few decades. Combining analyses of longitudinal data with qualititative interviews with young men, Cherlin will argue that deindustrialization of the American economy is a major factor in the decline of the working-class family.
