Having read and reviewed Carol Craig's 'The Scots Crisis of Confidence' and 'The Tears that made the Clyde' I could not wait to read Carol Craig's latest work. I was not disappointed.
The central theme of this book as the title suggests is the way in which modern western societies have become dominated by the values of the free market, materialism and the media, which has contributed to declined wellbeing and social solidarity amongst other problems.
As with her previous works, Carol Craig takes a broad approach, covering a variety of issues including consumer culture, social justice, education to name only a few. Like her previous works, Carol Craig demonstrates her talent in being able to construct a holistic argument, which connects numerous and often complex issues within a versatile framework.
I would recommend this to all who have enjoyed Carol Craig's previous works.

Fantastic! Absolutely hits the nail on the head and captures the zeitgeist in the country. People are looking for a new vision. I never post reviews on Amazon. But after reading this small book (which you could read in a couple of days) I felt compelled to. It was that good.
