'Conspicuous consumption of valuable goods is a means of reputability to the gentleman of leisure.'In The Theory of the Leisure Class Thorstein Veblen sets out 'to discuss the place and value of the leisure class as an economic factor in modern life'. In so doing he produced a landmark study of affluent American society that exposes, with brilliant ruthlessness, the habits of production and waste that link invidious business tactics and barbaric social behaviour. Veblen's analysis of the evolutionary process sees greed as the overriding motive in the modern economy; with animpartial gaze he examines the human cost paid when social institutions exploit the consumption of unessential goods for the sake of personal profit. Fashion, beauty, animals, sports, the home, the clergy, scholars - all are assessed for their true usefulness and found wanting. The targets of Veblen's coruscatingsatire are as evident today as they were a century ago, and his book still has the power to shock and enlighten. Veblen's uncompromising arguments and the influential literary force of his writing are assessed in Martha Banta's Introduction. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

Delcea Sergiu a dat nota:

Veblen's classic needs few words of introduction. This scathing critique of late 19th American society, gravitates around an essential transformation of the middle classes - the conspicuous use of non-productive time to display status. Veblen brings the full might of his uncompromising personna into this book, which tackles virtually all aspects of the up-and-coming bourgeois mores of American society. Himself a rather curious figure, with a tumultuous personal life, Veblen dissects early perversions of the idea of cultural capital.
