The Cultural Contradictions of Capitalism

Bell, Daniel

With a new afterword by the author, this classic analysis of Western liberal capitalist society contends that capitalism-and the culture it creates-harbors the seeds of its own downfall by creating a need among successful people for personal gratification-a need that corrodes the work ethic that led to their success in the first place. With the end of the Cold War and the emergence of a new world order, this provocative manifesto is more relevant than ever. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
