The Culture of Narcissism: American Life in An Age of Diminishing Expectations

Etukansi
W. W. Norton & Company, 23.10.2018 - 320 sivua

The classic New York Times bestseller, with a new introduction by E.J. Dionne Jr.

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 groundbreaking. 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. The Culture of Narcissism offers an astute and urgent analysis of what we need to know in these troubled times.
