Product description

In "Dark Ages America", the pundit Morris Berman argues that America has entered a dangerous phase in its historical development from which there is no return. As the corporate-consumerist juggernaut that now defines the nation rolls on, the very factors that once propelled America to greatness - extreme individualism, territorial and economic expansion, and the pursuit of material wealth - are, paradoxically, the nails in America's coffin. Within a few decades, Berman argues, the United States will be marginalised on the world stage, its hegemony replaced by China or the European Union. With the US just one terrorist attack away from a police state, Berman's book is a controversial and illuminating look at American society now and its ills.

Review quote

Berman assembles with uncommon clarity a vast amount of scholarship, data, and commentary in support of conclusions that most readers will resist. --Gresham Riley, Philadelphia Inquirer"
