Focusing on the changing image of the West Coast through such varied social and cultural artifacts as bodybuilding, group therapy, suicide cults, milk-carton images of missing children, teenage slang, and surf music, Laurence Rickels offers a dizzying psychohistory of the twentieth century as crystallized in the symbolic configuration called California and considered in relation to German modernism, national socialism, and Freudian psychoanalysis.

About the Author:

Laurence A. Rickels is professor of art and theory at the Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe, Germany, and Sigmund Freud Professor of Media and Philosophy at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland.

Review:

An intellectual tour de force that offers a highly eccentric vision of a familiar cultural landscape. -- Los Angeles Times

Explores the ‘bi-coastal logic of modernity,’ with California as one coast and Germany as the other. Startling and brilliant. -- San Francisco Bay Guardian
