Regular price $4.00

Thorstein Veblen, 1968 is a book of essays edited by Carlton C. Qualey on a prominent turn-of-the-century Social Critic and Liberal Activist. 

A contemporary of Henry George, Edward Bellamy, Henry Adams, Frederick Jackson Turner and John Dewey, Veblen  (1857-1929) was well known for writing two books: The Theory of the Leisure Class (1899) and The Theory of Business Enterprise (1904). He coined the phrase "conspicuous consumption" which is still popular among social critics.

The book proper is in very good condition: firm binding, some foxing, clean, no marks or tears--except for the dust jacket which is worn, slightly torn in two places and missing a 2 x 1/2 inch piece from the lower spine jacket. There is frontispiece photograph of Veblen.

The book is 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/4 inches by 3/4 inch and has 170 pages.
