Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Literary Nonfiction. Political Science. Media Studies. In DELUSIONS OF NORMALITY: SANITY, DRUGS, SEX, MONEY AND BELIEFS IN AMERICA, J. P. Harpignies argues convincingly that many of the unspoken assumptions underlying our media's discourse about our society are at serious odds with the reality of our lives. DELUSIONS OF NORMALITY offers a bracing but entertaining look at some of the darker corners of American life, providing a corrective lens to our rose-colored myopia about how we really are. It offers compelling evidence that we are collectively far less sane, far more corruptible, and far 'druggier', kinkier and zanier than we generally admit. Educators, social scientists, therapists and the merely curious, take note. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: In Delusions of Normality: Sanity, Drugs, Sex, Money and Beliefs in America, J P Harpignies argues convincingly that many of the unspoken assumptions underlying our media's discourse about our society are at serious odds with the reality of our lives. Delusions offers a bracing but entertaining look at some of the darker corners of American life, providing a corrective lens to our rose-colored myopia about how we really are. It offers compelling evidence that we are collectively far less sane, far more corruptible, and far 'druggier', kinkier and zanier than we generally admit. Educators, social scientists, therapists and the merely curious, take note.

About the Author: A writer and editor, and former teacher of writing in the CUNY system, J.P is the author of three books: Double Helix Hubris, an early (1996/97) look at the potential risks of unmonitored genetic manipulation; 2004's Political Ecosystems, an exhortation to left and eco activists to engage in far more sophisticated political thinking; and, most recently, Delusions of Normality. He also edited Visionary Plant Consciousness, a collection of talks and essays by some of the world's leading specialists in the use of sacred, consciousness-altering plants, and was associate editor of the two first Bioneers books: Ecological Medicine, which delves into the links between human and environmental health, and Nature's Operating Instructions, a collection about cutting edge, "nature based" ("biomimic") solutions to environmental problems. J.P. also taught taijiquan in Brooklyn, NY, for 24 years.
