American Dream by John Roth


This rare course (out of print now) represents so-called American Dream in a nutshell.

The "American Dream" is an ambiguous term as seen in popular culture. This pattern is reflected in music, television, film, and literature. The press keeps the term in print, and advertising capitalizes on the concept.

People have many perceptions of what the "American Dream" is. For some, the dream is part of an ideology that snares and deludes. The dream is often portrayed as jingoistic. Self-determination, success, wealth, and acquisition are words often used to describe the "American Dream." For some, the dream denotes a set of social and moral ideals.

Курс рассматривает понятие американской мечты от основания колоний в Северной Америке до XX века, автор очерчивает перспективы феномена, его жизнеспособность.
