RENOWNED SOCIAL CRITIC Theodore Roszak articulates a biting critique of the American political and cultural scene dating back to the conservative backlash of the Reagan presidency. World, Beware! analyzes three major forces that have coalesced to produce the triumphalist policies that now dominate U.S. politics: the corporate elite, the neoconservative intelligentsia, and the fundamentalist churches. Roszak calls for a new “global constituency” that would rein in the superpower’s excesses, and promotes a dialogue on the future of industrialism. Fuel to resist the neoconservative assault.
Part of the Provocations series.
America has proven unable to alter its own destructive course. The rest of the world must play a role in reining in the superpower’s excesses. Roszak shows us why and how.
