Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Managing editor of the New Criterion and art critic, Kimball continues his tirade against the cultural revolution of the 1950s and 1960s. He argues that the upheaval caused by the war in Vietnam allowed the ideology of the counterculture to escape from its intellectual ghetto and infect mainstream society. There he finds the roots of today's moral and sexual chaos, personal fragmentation and alienation, and suspicion and cynicism for all types of government and authority.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
