About the Author

DANIEL HOROWITZ is professor of American studies and history at Smith College. His scholarly work focuses on the cultural, social, and intellectual history of the United States. He is the author of Betty Friedan and the Making of the Feminine Mystique (1998), Vance Packard and American Social Criticism (1994), and The Morality of Spending: Attitudes toward the Consumer Society in America, 1875-1940, which was selected by Choice Magazine as one of the outstanding academic books of 1984. His most recent work, The Anxieties of Affluence: Critiques of American Consumer Culture, 1919-1979 (2003), examines how leading American writers worried about the dangers of national prosperity from WWI until the energy crisis of the 1970s.
