The book analyzes freedom and communication along with the inalienable rights and obligations that necessarily flow from this transcendent nature.

It explains and distinguishes the usual norms of morality: natural law, positive law, religion, and conscience- and then proceeds to discuss contemporary moral issues: sanction for crime, animal rights, business ethics, sexual morality, homosexuality, and abortion. In the light of that analysis, the book critiques three recent and well-known works on ethics: Robert Pirsigs Lila, James Q. Wilsons The Moral Sense, and Peter Singers Practical Ethics.An American Ethic provides a forceful and sometimes controversial interpretation of the principles of equality and liberty. While exploring the notion of what being a responsible American adult means in todays society, Gerken offers candid, and often novel, alternatives to the contemporary reliance upon moral relativism to solve social ills.
