Synopsis: In this, his most provocative bestseller, Vance Packard -- perhaps America's foremost social critic of the early 1960s -- exposes the systematic attempt of business to make us wasteful, debt-written, permanently discontented individuals... and all under the pretense of "keeping America strong". He clearly analyzes nine strategies of consumerism - consumption for consumption's sake - and shows how this new Mammon drains our pocketbooks, undermines our children, and threatens our future as individuals and as a nation. He also suggests what can be done about it, before it is too late!

About the Author: Vance Packard (1914-1996) was an American journalist, social critic, and best-selling author. Among his other books were The Hidden Persuaders, about how advertisers use psychological methods to get people to buy the products they sell, The Status Seekers, which describes American social stratification and behavior, and The Naked Society, about the threats to privacy posed by new technologies.
