Detailed Description

 
By Jane Velez-Mitchell
 
This book targets our entire culture, calling it a Nation of Addicts - arguing that Americans have collectively become dependent on and devoted to certain dysfunctions including:
  • crime
  • incarceration
  • war
  • overconsumption
  • overpopulation
  • prescription drug dependency
  • food addiction
  • sexual exploitation
  • cruelty
  • obsessive cleanliness
When enough people are hooked on the same substance or behavior, it crosses the line into a cultural addiction. According to Velez-Mitchell, media, government, and the private sector are also culturally hooked on these destructive customs and therefore justify, romanticize, and promote them - in essence, becoming "pushers."
 
In Addict Nation, Jane Velez-Mitchell calls attention to the collective denial by Americans about their addictions and overconsumption and confronts them to look at their bad behavior for what it really is: compulsive and self-destructive.
 
In other words, Addict Nation is an intervention. It will shock addicts out of denial and inspire them to get help and get well.
 
340 pages. Hardcover. 2011.
