End of Sanity: Social & Cultural Madness in America

End of Sanity: Social & Cultural Madness in America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the University of Pennsylvania, separate dorms have been set up for minorities in the name of racial harmony. In New Jersey, dentists who are HIV positive do not have to tell their patients despite the proven risk of infection. Grades are so inflated at Harvard that 84% of the students recently graduated with honors. Among women soldiers returning on a troop ship from Desert Storm, one in ten was pregnant. And these absurdities are but a few of the end products of a rampant social madness that threatens our nation--thanks, according to author Martin L. Gross, to a dangerous "New Establishment" of educators, judges, bureaucrats and military leaders who have consigned the concepts that have made America great to the cultural scrap heap. In his most explosive and powerfully reasoned work to date, Gross exposes the roots of a crisis that heralds the end of sanity in American life, and offers cogent remedies that can reverse the damage already done, and lead our society toward a greater, saner tomorrow.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 315-327) and index.

About the Author

Martin L. Gross, has written more than a dozen books, including the New York Times bestsellers The Government Racket: Washington Waste from A to Z, which began the serious debate over capricious and wasteful government, and A Call for Revolution, as well as The End of Sanity, The Medical Racket and The Conspiracy of Ignorance. His 1995 bestseller, The Tax Racket, exposed the excesses of the IRS and asked for its elimination. He has testified before the U. S. Congress five times. Three of his prior nonfiction works, The Brain Watchers, The Doctors, and The Psychological Society, stimulated public debate in the fields of psychological testing, medicine, and psychiatry, resulting in Congressional hearings and reforms. Mr. Gross has been a member of the faculty of The New School for Social Research and an Adjunct Associate Professor of Social Science at New York University. He lives and works in suburban Connecticut.
