The Culture of Narcissism
American Life in An Age of Diminishing Expectations179Skickas inom 7-10 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.When The Culture of Narcissism was first published in 1979, Christopher Lasch was hailed as a "biblical prophet" (Time). Lasch's identification of narcissism as not only an individual ailment but also a burgeoning social epidemic was ground-breaking. His diagnosis of American culture is even more relevant today, predicting the limitless expansion of the anxious and grasping narcissistic self into every part of American life.

"A bestseller in 1979, this outstanding analysis is enjoying a resurgence, being reissued with a new introduction by EJ Dionne Jr, who praises Lasch's "intellectually rebellious spirit"." -- The Herald "Morbidly clever, brilliantly on target, idiosyncratically compelling." -- Alan Wolfe - The New Republic "Lasch took in a remarkable range of contemporary experience, making many observations that, if anything, ring more true today." -- Lee Siegel - The New York Times
Christopher Lasch (1932-1994), professor of history at the University of Rochester, wrote, among many other works, The True and Only Heaven: Progress and Its Critics and the best-selling Revolt of the Elites and the Betrayal of Democracy.
