One of the most talked-about books in years, "A Nation of Victims" established Charles Sykes as a persuasive, witty, and controversial commentator on American life and society. The plaint of the victim-- "It's not my fault"-- has become the loudest and most influential voice in America, an instrument of personal and lasting political change.
* Fired for consistently showing up late for work, a former school district employee sues, claiming he is a victim of "chronic lateness syndrome."
* Videotaped puffing on a pipe filled with crack cocaine, Washington, D.C., Mayor Marion Barry claims he is a victim of racism.
* In 1960, fewer than 100,000 lawsuits were filed in federal courts; in 1990, more than 250,000 were filed.
In this incisive, pugnacious, frequently hilarious book, Charles Sykes examines the erosion of our society and offers hope in the prospect of a culture of renewed character.
