The Title of this book suggests a narrow scope, but much of what he writes could be applied to much of the developed world. This is particularly true of the chapters entitled "gender rancour" (a phrase many upper-class Britons would do well to avoid using), in which he draws largely on American work on the subject. His disdain for even the moderate branches of feminism is often disturbing, though his analysis of the role of consumerism in causing depression is compelling. His faith in Prozac and other SSRI's seems a little misplaced, though his call for a more reasoned debate on the merits of antidepressants is welcome. His optimism about the election of a Labour government in the UK in 1997 now seems a little naive as well. Though myself and others may not agree with all his judgements, it's impossible not to be impressed by his erudition.
