Description:

This paper looks at effects of ethnocentrism in American society. It discusses the ways in which symbolic interactionism served to bind and bond Americans in steps that helped the country move beyond the social and economic pitfalls that have, for instance, seen socialism and communism fall in other governments around the world. The paper specifically discusses how Americans celebrate and turn to symbolic interactionism in crisis and how symbolic interactionism has put America at the forefront of world philanthropy, change and in building a global community.
