American politics is increasingly driven by apocalyptic rhetoric. Highlighting possible adverse consequences of such politics for our freedom and quality of life, the book suggests alternative policy agendas, religious and philosophical discourses, cultural framing and modes of daily living

Editorial Reviews

"Buell has produced a very insightful description and critical analysis of the landscape of America's most serious problems and how they are understood by a public at the mercy of powerful and often hysterical cultural and political voices. He shows us how comparatively non-influential perspectives could alter the American landscape and ameliorate its most serious stresses and strains if they were translated into public policies. I strongly recommend this book for undergraduates as well as graduate students and professionals."--Morton Schoolman, professor of Political Science, State University of New York at Albany
