The Culture of Complaint free pdf In this radical account of the decline of 20th-century American culture, Robert Hughes insists that the politicization of almost every area of American culture has resulted in a fall in the standards required to hold such a diverse nation together. Based on a series of lectures sponsored by the New York Public Library and Oxford University Press, the text asserts that the melting pot of America has never melted, and that American mutuality has always existed in a recognition of differences. The blame for the fraying of the American sense of collectivity and mutual respect is laid at many doors: those who claim there is only one path to a virtuous America- multiculturalists who seek to rewrite history- advocators of political correctness- and sociologists who see the dysfunctional family as the cause of most personal problems.
