Abstract

We live in a complex, divided society. We are divided by wealth, income, education, housing, race, gender, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. These divisions are much discussed; in the last two years, there have been entire series in our major newspapers devoted to the growing income divide. The wealth-flaunting of today's rich was even the subject of a recent Sunday New York Times Magazine article ("City Life in the New Gilded Age," October 14, 2007).
