A Veblen Treasury: From Leisure Class to War, Peace, and Capitalism

Передня обкладинка
A collection of writings by economist and social critic Thorstein Veblen that provides a hearty sample of his broad spectrum of thought. Veblen ignited controversy in many academic disciplines: from his opinions about "conspicuous consumption," to his views on "salesmanship and the churches," Veblen walked across the wet mopped floors of our culture with muddy boots. Paper edition (unseen), $19.95. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
