Christopher Lasch: The Revolt of the Elites and the Betrayal of Democracy

Christopher Lasch’s posthumously-released collection of thirteen essays, published in 1996 under the title The Revolt of the Elites and the Betrayal of Democracy, is a searing work of political critique which foreshadowed the contemporary problems posed by technocratic globalism, populist backlash, and various forms of identity politics. Trained at Harvard and Columbia as an historian of American culture, Lasch sought to awaken American society to the ways in which major institutions, public and private, were eroding the competence and independence of families and communities. Learn how Lasch’s work remains stunningly relevant in the international and domestic political climate of today.
