Layers of Culture: Minds, Institutions, Nations, Civilisations by Liah Greenfeld
Liah Greenfeld is Professor of Sociology, Political Science and Anthropology at Boston University, US. She has been widely published on questions of art, economics, history, language and literature, philosophy, politics, religion, and science, and has studied the cultures of England/Britain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, China, Japan, Russia/Soviet Union, Israel, and the USA. Upon the publication of Nationalism: Five Roads to Modernity (Harvard University Press, 1992), she has emerged as a preeminent authority on nationalism, a distinction reinforced by the publication of The Spirit of Capitalism: Nationalism and Economic Growth (Harvard University Press, 2001; Donald Kagan Best Book in European History Prize). The third volume in her trilogy on the political, economic, and psychological aspects of modern culture is Mind, Modernity, Madness: The Impact of Culture on Human Experience (Harvard University Press, 2013).
All are welcome.
