Laurence Shames offers a brilliant and acerbic anatomy of America’s “Hunger for More,” from its roots in the optimism of the high frontier to its apotheosis in the frenzy–and panic–of the Reagan years. As a history of our love affair with consumption, as a prescription for a more durable and dignified national ethic, THE HUNGER FOR MORE is a book that defines the era just past, & maybe the future.
