Summary
In THE STATE OF THE AMERICAN MIND, editors Mark Bauerlein and Adam Bellow have assembled an all-star lineup of celebrated critics, intellectuals, academics, journalist, and social scientists who all agree that something in the American mind has gone awry. They each focus on specific problems from biblical illiteracy to political ignorance to the inherent narcissism of the internet age, but together they paint a disturbing portrait of an America in which the welfare of individuals, the economy, and the political health of the nation is at risk
