FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘A bold and superbly written book with many fresh, shrewd perceptions about figures we thought we knew well. Lasch writes as one deeply engaged with contemporary ideas and issues, and promises to become one of our major commentators on America.’ - RICHARD HOFSTADTER. This is an absorbing history of social reform in America. Around the turn of the century a great change swept over the liberal tradition. Progressivism had been for the most part a political movement, whereas those whom Christopher Lasch distinguishes as the new radicals were more interested in the reform of education, culture, and sexual mores; in the advancement of social reform and women’s rights; and in the avoidance of war and the exposure of corruption. Mr. Lasch has chosen to portray the new radicals chiefly by means of a series of vivid biographical essays. To illustrate the nature and sources of the change in the liberal tradition, he writes about Jane Addams and the emancipation of women; some eccentric feminists; Randolph Bourne, ‘the first culture hero of the revolt of youth’; Mabel Dodge Luhan and her uses of sex as politics; Walter Lippmann and the early New Republic; Lincoln Colcord and Colonel House; Lincoln Steffens, and a whole clutch of contemporary intellectuals.
