The Theory of the Leisure Class

Voorkant
Transaction Publishers, 1899 - 261 pagina's
In Veblen's first and best-known work, he challenges some of society's most cherished standards of behavior and with devastating wit and satire exposes the hollowness of many of our canons of taste, education, dress, and culture. Veblen uses the leisure class as his example because it is this class that sets the standards followed by every level of society.
