1 Anderson, Digby and Mullen, Peter (edited by) Faking It - The Sentimentalisation of Modern Society
London The Social Affairs Unit 1998 0907631754 / 9780907631750 First Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket. viii + 217 pages. Faking It charts the march of the fraudulent through modern society's institutions, through its government policies now obsessed with spin, image and gesture rather than substance, its sentimental environmental obsessions, its narcissistic, Godless religion, its elevation of fake feeling in novels and music. Its authors, 12 distinguished academics, offer a frightening vision of a self-indulgent civilisation which cannot tell image from reality. It was this sentimental weakness for the fake which, above all else, explains the Diana funeral phenomenon in which sentimentality - mob grief - was personified and canonised and feeling exalted above reason, reality and constraint.
