Pulitzer Prize winner and bestselling writer Chris Hedges explores the debauched revels of our dying culture; from ringside at professional wrestling bouts at Madison Square Garden to a Las Vegas pornographic film convention, and academic conferences held by positive psychologists who claim to be able to engineer happiness. Hedges chronicles our terrifying flight as a culture into a state of illusion and exposes the mechanisms used to divert us from confronting the economic, political, and moral collapse around us.

“Hedges makes a strong case for how different illusions – of literacy, love, wisdom, happines – taken together are destroying the American mind, culture, and the nation itself.”
