New York, NY, June 21, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- kulturCritic announces a brand new read right off the press straight from Sandy’s second home in Siberia, Russia. Cultural Criticism: Essays, Philosophical and Political, is a thematic collection of articles and brief essays written by the kulturCritic over the past two plus years.
Without exception, each article highlights a current or recent event in the news for the month in which it was penned. However, the conclusions that Sandy draws in each instance are of far greater significance than just that historical moment.
With an introductory piece on “Cultural Criticism and the Global Crisis,” Sandy sets the tone for the articles that follow as he reviews the challenges posed by the diverse intrigues and institutions of our contemporary situation. It is a wonderful compilation of reflections touching upon issues as diverse as the riots in Iran, pirates in Somalia, healthcare reform in America, US-Russia relations, and the oily destruction of the ecosystem in the Gulf of Mexico.
The book was recently reviewed by Professor Emeritus, Dr. Marvin Bram, who writes:
This collection of essays is unusually perceptive and thought-provoking. "Unusually," because Dr. Krolick fully understands both (a) the psychological and social structures of "civilization" defined correctly, which is unusual in itself, and (b), the psychological and social structures of the long-lived, widespread human cultures that preceded the appearance of civilization. He demonstrates that we cannot situate ourselves intelligently in the present without such insights as he provides about the past -- the deep past. Dr. Krolick's work will have to be reckoned with by all future analysts of the human condition and its prospects.
