All That Is Solid Melts Into Air: The Experience of Modernity - Marshall Berman Berman's point is clear and casts an important light -- his notion of modernity and, far more importantly to me, the claim that modernity has deep roots that should be nourishing and renewing (wonderful!).

But his method of getting the reader there is not sound. I'm glad to have spent some hours reading in it - but it's enough.
