Book summary

As we inch closer to a dark new millenium, anxieties rise. The sense of progress and promise that prevailed so powerfully in the 1960s has been replaced by a nervous pessimism, centering chiefly around uncertain realities - economic, political, environmental. This book takes this for granted and touches upon it, but its focus is the analysis of the anxiety itself: its nature, sources, substance, effects, and even cure. Its focus is primarily British/European and contributors include: Linda Grant on violence; Susie Orbach on psychoanalysis; Mary Midgely on ecology; and Michael Ignatieff on nationalism. [via]
