9780739102794: Decade of Denial: A Snapshot of America in the 1990s

Herbert London's new work places America in the 1990s under the microscope and discovers a country paying a heavy price for the excesses of the past, crippled by the cultural attitudes and rebelliousness of the sixties and seventies. London argues that the baby boomer generation has replaced openness with stealth and honesty with deceit. Far from mere nostalgic musings for a simpler time, Decade of Denial wonderfully captures the zeitgeist of the 1990s from the "dumbing down" of education to the proliferation of crass popular culture.

This is an essential book for serious readers of American cultural history seeking to understand the evolution of modern 'manners' and 'morals'.

About the Author:

Herbert London is President of the Hudson Institute and Professor of Humanities at New York University . He is the author or co-author of thirteen books including From the Empire State to the Vampire State: New York in A Downward Transition (1994), The Broken Apple: New York City in the 1980's (1989), Armageddon in the Classroom (1986), and Myths That Rule America (1981).

Review:

It is high time that we had any book of this nature from Herbert London. His outstanding record as an academic, as an aspirant public official, and now as head of his enormously influential foundation betokened the need to hear him explicate his ideas, which he has done here so successfully and eloquently. (William F. Buckley Jr., National Review)

Herb London's explication of the damage done to American culture through the 1990s is provocative, as it well should be. How are we to regenerate our spiritually broken culture other than by returning to the characteristics that made our nation great - optimism, merit, and virtue? We owe it to our children and their children's children to reflect on the damage done and where we need to be going both as a nation and as a culture. (General Alexander M. Haig, Jr. (USA Ret.), Former Secretary of State, NATO Commander, and White House Chief of Staff)
