The Twilight of American Culture by Morris Berman

A Prophetic Examination of Western Decline, the underground bestseller The Twilight of American Culture provides one of the most caustic and surprising portraits of American society to date. Whether examining the corruption at the heart of modern politics, the Rambification of popular entertainment, or the collapse of our school systems, Morris Berman asks if there is anything we can do as a society to arrest the onset of corporate Mass Mind culture. Citing writers as diverse as de Tocqueville and DeLillo, Berman cogently argues that cultural preservation is a matter of individual conscience, and discusses how classical learning might triumph over political correctness with the rise of a new monastic individual -- a person who is willing to reject the corporate consumer culture of our time and instead work to preserve the historical treasures of our civilization.
