Within the Context of No Contextby George W. S. Trow
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Written originally for a special issue of The New Yorker and reissued here with a new forward by the author, Within the Context of No Context is George W. S. Trow's brilliant exposition on the state of American culture and twentieth-century life. Published to widespread acclaim, Within the Context of No Context became an immediate classic and is, to this day, a favorite work of writers and critics alike. Both a chilling commentary on the times in which it was written and an eerie premonition of the future, Trow's work locates and traces, describes and analyzes the components of change in contemporary America — a culture increasingly determined by the shallow worlds of consumer products, daytime television, and celebrity heroes.
Written originally for a special issue of the New Yorker in 1978 and reissued here with a new Foreword by the author, Within the Context of No Context is George Trow's brilliant exposition on the state of American culture and 20th century life.
