Book Description Penguin, Harmondsworth, Middlesex, 1973. Paperback. Book Condition: Near Fine. First English Edition. black titles spine; "Is violence the only alternative for the modern American radical? The 'agony' of the American Left, as Christopher Lasch describes it, has been peculiarly dispiriting, from the disintegration of the old mass-based movements - socialism, populisrn and feminism - to the decimation of the New Left by McCarthyism. Affluence has claimed the 'professional intellectual' and since the sixties only violent activists and black nationalists have dominated an otherwise empty stage. Today, despite the radicalization aroused by the Vietnam war, the United States is - as Christopher Lasch observes - 'a society . in which the consciousness of alternatives to capitalism, once so pervasive, has almost faded from memory.' In these five essays Christopher Lasch examines why the early successes of the Old Left came to nothlnq, how the pre-war generation of radicals came to uphold the status quo and why the modern generation must develop a mature political programme if American radicalism is to benefit American society." ; previous owner's name on pre-title page; including index - 208 pages.
