The American dream champions individualism. But at what price? In the fully updated fifth edition of The Wilding of America, Charles Derber chronicles the latest incidents of wilding -acts of self-interested violence or greed that weaken the social fabric. The new edition examines such topics as the recent doping scandals in sports; government-sponsored torture; new threats to our public space, social infrastructure, and natural environment; the effects of the Obama administration on wilding behavior; and in an all-new chapter, the 2008 Wall Street meltdown.
