Summary "As an idea, the berserk style is terrifying but also alluring in its promise that we can gain access to extraordinary resources by overthrowing inhibitions. Focusing on post-Vietnam America, using perspectives from psychology, anthropology, and physiology, the book demonstrates the need for criticism to unpack the confusions in language and cultural fantasy that drive the nation's fascination with the berserk style"--Provided by publisher.
