Mental health, the NBA, China’s social economy, parental drug use and more. A look at some of the major research contributions Skidmore students and faculty are making to our world together this summer.
The Book That Changed America has been described in reviews as a “biography of an idea” and/or an “intellectual

impact that Darwin’s did. Can you think of any recent books that created a substantial

religion. Which historical figures in the book seem most (or least) able to reconcile
that conflict for themselves? Do you believe that conflict endures in our contemporary
world? If so, how?
