Spirit of Capitalism by Liah Greenfeld

Book Description

Nowhere has economic activity been further removed from the rational calculation of costs than in the United States, where the economy has come to be perceived as the end-all of political life and the determinant of all social progress. American "economic civilization" spurs the nation on to ever-greater economic achievement. But it turns Americans into workaholics, unsure of the purpose of their pursuits, and leads American statesmen to exaggerate the weight of economic concerns in foreign policy, often to the detriment of American political influence and the confusion of the rest of the world.

Books By Author Liah Greenfeld

Mind, Modernity, Madness by Liah Greenfeld Mind, Modernity, Madness, Hardback (April 2013)

A leading interpreter of modernity argues that our culture of limitless self-fulfillment is making millions mentally ill. Training her analytic eye on manic depression and schizophrenia, Liah Greenfeld, in the culminating volume of her trilogy on nationalism, traces these dysfunctions to society's overburdening demands for self-realization.

Different Worlds by Liah Greenfeld Different Worlds, Paperback (November 2006)

Using a wealth of data collected in Israel, this study depicts a complete system in which art is created and evaluated.

Nationalism by Liah Greenfeld Nationalism, Paperback (December 1993)

"Nationalism" is based on research in four languages - legal documents, period dictionaries, memoirs and correspondence, literary works, biographies, statistics, histories and more. A five-country study that spans 500 years, this is a historically oriented work in sociology.
