America’s New Direction

Everyone agrees that the mood across America is changing rapidly. We are in a new period of national urgency, post-global pandemic crisis, with worries about financial collapse, nuclear proliferation, and global instability. In their 1997 book, The Fourth Turning, Neil Howe and the late William Strauss predicted that this was just where America would be today. They uncovered a remarkable pattern in American history, a cycle of recurring eras driven by generational changes.

Now, right on schedule, our own fourth turning has arrived. And Neil Howe has returned with an extraordinary new prediction in his new book, The Fourth Turning is Here. What we see all around us—the polarization, the growing threat of civil conflict and global war—will culminate by the early 2030s in a climax that poses great danger and yet also holds great promise, perhaps even bringing on America’s next golden age.

Using this proven historical method, Neil Howe offers a road map that truly explains where America is today-and, more importantly, where it is heading. Howe looks back into history and deep into the collective personality of each living generation to make sense of our current crisis, explore how all of us will be differently affected by the political, social, and economic challenges we’ll face in the decade to come, and reveal how our country, our communities, and our families can best prepare to meet these challenges head-on.
