American Dreams, American Nightmares 1970 Edited David Madden
American Dreams, American Nightmares, edited by David Madden in 1970. 19 scholars were asked to focus on imaginative literature that springs for the realities in America dealing with both dreams and nightmare. Most of the writers conclude that "in her way of pursuing the American Dream, America has created a nightmare."

What about the "American Nightmares"?
Do you agree or disagree? What do you think--50 years after these professors expressed themselves?
