Haven in a Heartless World: The Family Besieged

Copertina anteriore
W. W. Norton & Company, 1995 - 230 pagine
One of the earliest and sharpest cultural commentators to investigate the twentieth-century American family, Christopher Lasch argues in this book that as social science experts intrude more and more into our lives, the family's vital role as the moral and social cornerstone of society disintegrates--and, left unchecked, so does our political and personal freedom.

Mr. Lasch combines an analytic overview of the psychological and sociological literature on the American family with his own trenchant analysis of where the problem lies.
