Description
Deftly Moving from Movies to Marxism, Freud to feminism, The American Century covers an exhaustive range of topics relating to the vibrant culture of the twentieth century. Much more than just an exploration of art and literature, this entertaining and enlightening volume encompasses drama, dance, film, architecture, philosophy, theology, science, sociology, psychology, education, technology, and political movements, as well as the influence of broad ideologies, such as structuralism, conservatism, modernism, and deconstructionism. There is even a fascinating section that provides capsule reviews of 100 films and examines their significance as benchmarks of cultural analysis.<P>A completely revised edition of Cantor's Twentieth-Century Culture (first published in 1988) -- and presenting 35 percent new material -- this is the magnum opus of a historian, teacher, and author of great distinction.<P>"Opinionated, idiosyncratic, and thoroughly entertaining.... No one will close the book unenlightened". -- New York Times Book Review<P>"An intellectual road map of the twentieth century... peppered with startling insights and bold judgments". -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
