    This must have been one of the most impressive books I remember to have read recently. The overview on western culture, from about 600 BC to the mid XX century is truly impressive. The understanding on arts, science, economics through the ages and the moment we are presently living through is really interesting. Sorokin's intelectual legacy is definitely a giant's work.

    It would be difficult to overstate the value of this book. I'm not sure I have ever read anything that so articulates the current state of things pertaining to the world in which we live. Insightful, forensic, and beautifully written: this is one profound book. Though written in the middle years of the Second World War, its message seems more timely now than when it was first published. A truly prophetic volume whose thesis we need to take very seriously.

    WOW...eye opening book. Required to read this for a doctorate class but loved every minute of it. Amazing how much has not changed since most of this was written in 1940's or so. Interesting take on culture and society. WOW...eye opening book. Required to read this for a doctorate class but loved every minute of it.
