Christopher Lasch was a leading intellectual of the twentieth century. His work consistently probed the nations political and cultural terrain, considering the unruly thrust of Americas history and the possibilities of a better way. Hope in a Scattering Time is the first and only full biography of this towering intellectual figure.
Miller plumbed Laschs published writings, his correspondence, and interviews and correspondence with his friends, students, and colleagues to create this comprehensive biography. In these pages Eric Miller captures the evolving nature of Laschs understanding of the world and his fight for clarity and insight in a muddled age.
Christopher Laschs sharp, prophetic stance caused many in his time to rethink what they thought they had understood, and to consider the world anew. Fifteen years after Laschs death, the time is ripe to once again follow his lead and to reassess how we view and understand our world.
