The Intellectual Devotional

Modern Culture

by Karen Zarker

2 December 2008

 

The third and equally worthy installment in The Intellectual Devotional series, this is the book that will give your trivia-loving know-it-all an edge. That’s obvious. But anybody post-BA with an active mind will benefit from a revisit to the concepts (neoconservativism), movements (busing), trends (Beatlemania) and individuals (Rupert Murdoch), to name but a few highlights of modern culture. Equal parts reminder, rediscovery and ‘I never new that’ illuminating, these 365 daily readings will prompt ‘Did you know that ...?’  conversation for, well, at least the year to come.
