During the 1970s, the United States became the world's preeminent postindustrial society. The new conditions changed the way Americans lived and worked and even their perceptions of reality. In this reassessment of a little studied decade, J. David Hoeveler, Jr., finds that the sense of detachment and dislocation that characterizes the postindustrial society serves as a paradigm for American thought and culture in the 1970s. The book examines major developments in literary theory, philosophy, architecture, and painting as expressions of a 1970s consciousness.
