Backfire : a history of how American culture led us into Vietnam and made us fight the way we did by Loren Baritz( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the only book to examine the myths of the American culture that led us into the Vietnam quagmire in the first place. It exposes our national myths: the conviction of our moral supremacy, our assumptions that Americans are more idealistic than other people, and our faith in a technology that supposedly makes us invincible. It also discusses how Vietnam has changed American culture today, and in the future. -- Publisher description

The culture of the twenties by Loren Baritz( Book )

19 editions published between 1970 and 1985 in English and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The boisterous period in American history that produced the Charleston and Charles Lindbergh, surrealistic art and gangland-style murder was a period of upheaval, of fundamental change in American life--in politics, business, religion, the arts, and in living. In this anthology, the authors, politicians, preachers, and eccentrics speak for themselves: from Walter Lippmann to Anita Loos, from Bartolomeo Vanzetti to Joseph Wood Krutch, from Herbert Hoover to F. Scott Fitzgerald, here are the voices of the fools and the heroes of a wanton but innocent era. This collection reveals the roots of many of today's most hotly debated issues, for the twenties did not settle problems and disagreements concerning the human spirit versus technology, flag-waving patriotism versus international responsibility, puritanical inhibition versus flapper freedom, and many other conflicts of the spirit and mind. Rather, the people of the twenties first squarely faced such questions and in doing so "staggered into modernity."--Publisher description
The good life : the meaning of success for the American middle class by Loren Baritz( Book )

12 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the American middle class' What does it want' In search of these answers The Good Life tackles the assumptions Americans make and have made about their own culture'about the meaning of equality, success, personal and national security, acceptable ways of dressing and loving and raising children, and, most important, individual freedom. Loren Baritz, a noted observer of American society, leads us to discover not only what Americans are after, but what they usually get in the end. Revealing the realities, the illusions, and the myths of the American middle class, The Good Life makes an exceptional contribution to the understanding of the American way of life. Its broad, incisive, scholarly commentary is sure to arouse controversy and debate

"This study deals with the industrial use of those disciplines which are primarily and directly concerned with human thought and conduct in the widest sense and which do not emphasize particular aspects of human experience. Thus by "social science" is meant only psychology, sociology, occasionally anthropology, and the new field of human relations. Other social sciences, for example economics and political science, become relevant at a very few points and are dealt with when necessary"--Preface.
