n this milestone analysis of contemporary social values and foibles, Laurence Shames, the former ethics columnist for Esquire, offers a brilliant and acerbic anatomy of America’s “Hunger for More,” from its roots in the optimism of the high frontier to its apotheosis in the frenzy – and panic – of the Reagan years. As a history of our love affair with consumption, as a prescription for a more durable and dignified national ethic, THE HUNGER FOR MORE is a truly important book – one that may shape the era to come even as it defines the one just passed.
Laurence Shames is the author of more than twenty books. For details, please visit his website: http://www.LaurenceShames.com
