Lears, T. J. Jackson


T. J. Jackson Lears draws on a wealth of primary sources sermons, diaries, letters as well as novels, poems, and essays to explore the origins of turn-of-the-century American antimodernism. He examines the retreat to the exotic, the pursuit of intense physical or spiritual experiences, and the search for cultural self-sufficiency through the Arts and Crafts movement. Lears argues that their antimodern impulse, more pervasive than historians have supposed, was not "simple escapism," but reveals some enduring and recurring tensions in American culture. "It's an understatement to callNo Place of Gracea brilliant book. . . . It's the first clear sign I've seen that my generation, after marching through the '60s and jogging through the '70s might be pausing to examine what we've learned, and to teach it."Walter Kendrick,Village Voice "One can justly make the claim thatNo Place of Gracerestores and reinterprets a crucial part of American history. Lears's method is impeccable."Ann Douglas,The NationLears, T. J. Jackson is the author of 'No Place of Grace Antimodernism and the Transformation of American Culture 1880-1920', published 1994 under ISBN 9780226469706 and ISBN 0226469700.
