introduction by author and notes. The text is illustrated with black-and-white photography. 1/4 black coloured cloth covered backstrip with metallic silver and red coloured titles. 3/4 silver gray coloured boards. Author's initials embossed into the front panel. Plain text dustwrapper with black and white colour titles to the front panel and backstrip. Black-and-white photograph of the author to the rear dustwrapper panel. A provocative view into the quality of American life in the 1970s – and probably still appropriate today. The author " ... examines a peculiarly detrimental national trade: our love of novelty has turned in two nouveaumania and has become a dominant influence in how we live, what we eat, what we buy, what we wear, and how we identify ourselves, raise our children's, relate to the opposite sex." -- from the front fold over panel blurb. Softening to the backstrip with rubbing of the book corners and lower book edges. Fading to the book edges with age toning and some staining of the textblock edges with light age toning of the pages. An erasure mark to the top right-hand corner of the free front end paper and the remains of a sticker to the same page. Creasing to the dustwrapper edges with rubbing of the dustwrapper panels. Multiple creases to the front fold over panel. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 181, [1] pages,. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Illustrator: Photographic. Quantity Available: 1.
