on Third Programme

View in Radio Times

A transatlantic conversation between Mark Abrams and Reuel Denney, Associate Professor of Social Science in the University of Chicago.
The Lonely Crowd, to which Professor Denney contributed, did a lot to foster the impression over here that the American consumer was the slave of Madison Avenue and the good opinion of the neighbours. In his latest book The Astonished Muse Professor Denney detects signs of revolt.
