Rapid Transition by Jack Lessenberry's Essays and Interviews

Jack Lessenberry writes: Every age has intellectual giants who are so much a part of the cultural fabric that it is almost impossible to imagine life without them. John Kenneth Galbraith was one of those.

That's why I was a bit shaken by the great economist's death last weekend, even though he was almost 98 years old and had lived a full and wonderful life. I was a college freshman when I read his best-known work, The Affluent Society. I picked it up and leafed through it Sunday afternoon, and was startled, fascinated ... and depressed by how relevant it seems today.
