About the Program
Gertrude Himmelfarb was a guest on Booknotes in 1995 to talk about her book, "The De-Moralization of Society." The author asserts that the Victorian virtues of hard work and deferral of gratification are the tools to fix current social problems in America.
Gertrude Himmelfarb is the author of several books, including "Marriage and Morals among the Victorians," "Darwin and the Darwinian Revolution," "Victorian Minds; Poverty and Compassion," "The Moral Imagination of the Late Victorians," and "The Idea of Poverty: England in the Early Industrial Age."
