Beschreibung

Politics, manners, humor, sexuality, wealth, even our definitions of success are periodically renegotiated based on the new values society chooses to use as a lens to judge what is acceptable.
Are these new values randomly chosen or is there a pattern? Pendulum chronicles the stuttering history of western society; that endless back-and-forth swing between one excess and another, always reminded of what we left behind.
There is a pattern and it is forty years: 2003 was a fulcrum year, as was 1963, its opposite.
Pendulum explains where we have been as a society, how we got here, and where we are headed. If you would benefit from a peek into the future, you would do well to listen to this book.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
