Began this book tonight. The title, "Urban Tribes", was coined by the author, Ethan Watters to describe an "intricate community of young people who live and work together in various combinations, form regular rituals, and provide the same kind of support as an extended family." The book is an account of his experiences with his own "tribe" and the "tribes" of millions of other postmoderns in our society.

I'll let you know how the book is. If anything, it might help paint even a clearer picture of our culture and where/how community fits into the picture.
