The problem, Pogrebin asserts, stems from a mix of depersonalization, social mobility, competition, fragmentation, and changing sex roles. Pogrebin loses steam after this interesting beginning. Basically, she finds that the universe is unfolding as it should, noting that the recent spate of ""caring"" bumper-stickers and other such manifestations of ""community"" argues nobly that people have recognized the problem and the need  .

From the back cover:
"What makes a good friend?
"When are women's friendships destructive, and when are they better than a love affair?
"What do men friends talk about most - and what do they _never_ talk about?
"What are the ten most common causes of tension between friends?
"Can friends have sex and stay friends?
"Letty Cottin Pogrebin answers these and hundreds of other provocative questions in _Among Friends_, a landmark book about friendship in all its pleasurable, problematical complexity. Deftly weaving fresh insights, eye-opening facts, and heart-warming anecdotes, Pogrebin draws on nearly 150 interviews and a vast body of research to analyze whom we choose as friends, how we make friends, and why some friendships crack under the smallest pressure while others last a lifetime...."
You will enjoy this book if you are an extrovert who wants to learn more about how and why you get along with other people. On the other hand, this book will be of little relevance to solitary people who do not spend a lot of time in social settings. Letty Cottin Pogrebin has written several other interesting books, including _Growing up Free_ and _Family Politics_.

This book was published in the mid-1980s, and being born in 1987, I was surprised by how different I am from those who were in their twenties on the day of my birth. The first part of the book is rather insightful. Despite it being largely documentary, she does manage to slip her own thoughts in seamlessly, which gives the reader a clear idea of her message.

It was VERY odd reading the second part. I understand that the civil rights movements heavily influenced the people who were being interviewed, and the author herself. I found it very difficult, though, and still find it very difficult in modern day, when "white" is seen as NO ETHNICITY while "Black" has its own, socially recognized ethnic identity. The capitalization of "Black" and lowercase lettering of "white" is also very deliberate, and a bit degrading. If one is Irish, Italian, or an Irish-Italian living in the US, they are addressed as such in this book. However, one of Indo-European descent whose background is vague, at best, is classified as "white".

Being "white" myself, I felt that the second part of the book rejected me, but I will keep the publication date in mind, meaning that the research took place many years before. The first and third parts of the book, however, still have a strong ring of truth for everyone.
