At times it seemed ranty and overly focused on the 70s. I read this book and thought Cracked me inside like a beat-up eggshell. Maybe I just like this book because I already agreed with it.

Lasch is narcisiso politics, above all else, a democratic humanist. It also happens to fall into a group of other books which share the same body of concerns that I have been working my way through, or around, in recent months: As the public world came to be seen as a mirror of the self, people lost the capacity for detachment and hence for playful encounter, which presupposes a certain distance from the self.
