William Trow first published this book in 1980 making it one of the first social critiques reflecting the consequences to society adumbrated first in Herbert Marcuse's One Dimensional Man. Trow's short book is a prescient, articulate and insightful analysis of the loss of reason and agency in modern society. People repeat when prompted, think not too much, and live automatically -- as in automatons. The book's vintage gives it historical quality, a tunnel-vision into conditions informing the malaise of the late 1970s.
