Book News
A social critic offers a scathing assault on the institutions and pretensions of the new capitalist order and the tyranny of the almighty market. He examines the morphing of the language of American democracy into the jargon of the marketplace, and traces the notion that markets are identifiable with democracy and the will of the people. He looks at the ideas of recent business culture in management, advertising, Wall Street, newspaper publishing, politics, and popular social theories. Frank is founding editor of The Baffler , a magazine of cultural criticism. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
