KIRKUS REVIEW

The publishers assure us that this is a challenge to the wave of pessimism, that it is hopeful and constructive. There are nine chapters; eight of them paint a picture of our decadent culture, the ""sensate culture"" that succeeded the ideational and idealistic some four hundred years ago. All the waves of crises in society, government, art and literature, ethics and religion are symptoms that we are in the transition period, and must accept a return to the idealistic culture- or extinction. Europe has fallen our chance is almost gone.
