Rate this:
Mills (American studies, Sarah Lawrence College) asserts that during the 1990s, American society has become significantly more mean- spirited and uncivil. He explains the ways in which this culture of meanness has been shaped by such influences as the end of the Cold War and the civil rights movement, the loss of post-World War II prosperity, and fears about the US economy. He also discusses implications for life in the country in the next millennium. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
