Kirby Farrell, "Berserk Style in American Culture"
English | 2011 | 262 Pages | ISBN: 0230116639 | PDF | 4 MB

More than a behavior, the "berserk" cultural style is terrifying, yet also alluring in its promise of access to extraordinary resources by overthrowing inhibitions. Berserk style has shaped many areas of contemporary American culture, from warfare and economic thinking to politics and intimate life. Focusing on post-Vietnam America and using perspectives from psychology, anthropology, and physiology, Farrell demonstrates the need for criticism to unpack the confusions in language and cultural fantasy that drive the nation’s fascination with the berserk style.
