Dark Ages America
The Final Phase of Empire

Dark Ages America by Morris Berman (2007) - 400 pages

The Twilight of American Culture appeared in 2000 like a thunderbolt, warning that America's corporate culture and rampant materialism would set off an international counter-response. In his new work, Morris Berman discusses the coming collapse of the American economy, the erosion of democratic ideals, and the emergence of a "seamless propaganda machine" that has virtually destroyed popular discourse. It is, he argues, the specific details of the way we live - our values and daily behavior - that have brought about this state of affairs, from which there can be no return.

A cultural historian and social critic, Morris Berman has taught at a number of universities in Europe and North America, and has held visiting endowed chairs at Incarnate Word College (San Antonio), the University of New Mexico, and Weber State University. Between 1982 and 1988 he was the Lansdowne Professor in the History of Science at the University of Victoria, British Columbia. Berman won the Governor's Writers Award for Washington State in 1990, and was the first recipient of the annual Rollo May Center Grant for Humanistic Studies in 1992. He is the author of a trilogy on the evolution of human consciousness - The Reenchantment of the World (1981), Coming to Our Senses (1989), and Wandering God: A Study in Nomadic Spirituality (2000) - and in 2000 his Twilight of American Culture was named a Notable Book by the New York Times Book Review. Berman has done numerous radio and television interviews in Europe, the United States, and Asia, and in recent years has lectured in Australia, Colombia, Germany, Mexico, and New Zealand. Since 2003 he has been a Visiting Professor in Sociology at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.
