Description - Bobos in Paradise by Brooks

It used to be easy to distinguish between the bourgeois world of capitalism and the bohemian counterculture, but now the "bos" are all mixed up and it is impossible to tell an espresso-sipping artist from a cappucino-gulping banker. In attitudes towards sex, morality, leisure and work, it is hard to separate the renegade from the company man. There is a new establishment which has combined the counterculture of the sixties and the achieving eighties into one ethos. These "Bobos" define our age. This book is an essay on the cultural consequences of the information age.
