The Myth of Progress

Yvonne Burgess

SKU/ISBN: 9780947988777

This is a journey into the soul of Western society – towards the distorted roots of our advanced and ‘developed’ culture, which has grown to its elevated position of wealth and economic security at the expense of other cultures. The author weaves memories, stories, political and economic analysis and philosophical and psychological ideas into a rich textual fabric.

Review in New InternationalistReview by Chris Brazier
‘It is through reflections like this – simultaneously personal and global, rooted in the creative space where cultures collide that we will at least start to ask the right questions. The Myth of Progress is one woman’s attempt to start rebuilding our shattered sense of community.’
