"A bestseller in 1979, this outstanding analysis is enjoying a resurgence, being reissued with a new introduction by EJ Dionne Jr..." The Herald

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.

Review:

Morbidly clever, brilliantly on target, idiosyncratically compelling. --Alan Wolfe

Lasch took in a remarkable range of contemporary experience, making many observations that, if anything, ring more true today. --Lee Siegel

Lasch has gone to the heart of our culture. The insights into personality and its social context are stunning. --Michael Rogin, University of California, Berkeley

About the Author:

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.
