Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Though commonly thought of as a kind of worldliness at its best and an elitist snobbery at its worst, sophistication, Joseph Litvak reminds us, remains tied to its earlier, if forgotten, meaning of "perversion"--which encompassed homosexuality and intellectualism. Litvak's strategy is to reveal culture as a contest of sophistications in which the winners are often those who best disguise their sophistication.
