THE THEORY OF THE LEISURE CLASS
With devastating satiric wit, this study examines the hollowness and falsity suggested by the term "conspicuous consumption" and exposes the emptiness of many cherished standards of taste, education, dress, and culture. Originally published in 1899, this work has become a classic of social and economic theory.
