The Age of Anxiety
Sarah Dunant, Roy Porter
Virago Press, 1996 - Anxiety - 203 pages
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 The sense of progress and promise that prevailed so powerfully in the 1960s has been replaced by a nervous pessimism, centering chiefly around uncertain realities - economic, political, environmental.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.
