"This extended essay argues that the attacks on the World Trade Center have exposed the Western world not just to terror, but also to an underlying cultural emptiness that is crippling its ability to respond adequately. Ranging from the ancient Greek gods to recent American films, and visiting Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness on the way, Carroll argues that the West is in disarray. What is now faced is not just the threat of further attacks, he contends, but a world where values have been leached away by a secular culture based on excess."

Book Description Scribe Publications, Australia, 2002. Soft Cover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 105 pages. Sociologist Dr. John Carroll argues that there is a deeper story behind the events of September 11, 2001 and their immediate aftermath. He believes that the attacks on the World Trade Centre have exposed the Western world not just to terror, but to an underlying cultural emptiness that is crippling its ability to respond adequately. As he ranges from the ancient Greek gods to recent American films, visiting Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness on the way, Carroll argues that the West is in psychic disarray. What we all face now is the threat of further attacks from Usama bin Laden's al-Qaeda global terrorist network, whose range and penetration is not well appreciated. And we do so from a suspect foundation that we could once rely on, now leached away by a secular culture which evades self-knowledge and feeds on excess. Size: 12mo. Seller Inventory # 056600
