Summary

Classic Books Library presents this brand new edition of Oscar Wilde's classic Gothic novel, "The Picture of Dorian Gray" (1890). Perhaps Wilde’s most famous and celebrated of works, the story follows a young man’s hedonistic journey through high society and the depths of depravity. Seduced by the spoils of greed, narcissism and lust, he pays a ghoulish price for his actions. Oscar Wilde (1884-1900) was an Irish author, playwright and poet. He moved from Dublin to Oxford where he studied under renowned art critics Walter Pater and John Ruskin and became associated with the literary and philosophical movement of Aestheticism.

    In a potent act of myth busting, Noam Chomsky turns his critical gaze upon the Kennedy Administration and draws controversial parallels between the Presidency of JFK and that of Ronald Reagan, with particular focus on the Vietnam War. For anyone persuaded that changing the world is simply a question of changing its leading figures this work will act both as a bitter pill and a powerful stimulant to action.
