Description - Not with a Bang But a Whimper by Theodore Dalrymple

In Not with a Bang But a Whimper, Dalrymple takes the measure of our cultural decline, with special attention to Britain-its bureaucratic muddle, oppressive welfare mentality, and aimless young-all pursued in the name of democracy and freedom. He shows how terrorism and the growing numbers of Muslim minorities have changed our public life. Also here are Mr. Dalrymple's trenchant observations on artists and ideologues, and on the treatment of criminals and the mentally disturbed, his area of medical interest.

Buy Not with a Bang But a Whimper by Theodore Dalrymple from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
