Overview

This collection of essays addresses both popular culture and academic discourse. Contributors sound a cautionary note about the dumbing down of our civilization and the lack of spiritual depth in mass culture, but as these essays show, there is a spark of imaginative critical thought still brewing. Addressing race, assimilation, American civilization, and broken dreams, these essays have appeared previously in publications such as the New York Times, the London Review of Books, and Poets & Writers. "These essays as whole give a pretty good picture of where we are going and where we have been as we turn the corner into a new millennium, still fending off the apocalypse, still slouching towards Bethlehem"— editor, Charles Rammelkamp.
