Overview

The Minimal Self: Psychic Survival in Troubled Times by Christopher Lasch

"Even more valuable than its widely praised predecessor, The Culture of Narcissism." —John W. Aldridge

Faced with an escalating arms race, rising crime and terrorism, environmental deterioration, and long-term economic decline, people have retreated from commitments that presuppose a secure and orderly world. In his latest book, Christopher Lasch, the renowned historian and social critic, powerfully argues that self-concern, so characteristic of our time, has become a search for psychic survival.
