Crouch argues Americans are yearning to be what they're not and afraid to be who they are. It's a desperate search for a grasp at cultural authenticity that's taken American culture straight into a hollow, hopeless world of artificiality that ought to stop, Crouch says. What's at stake, according to Crouch, is nothing less than the American individual and American civilization.

Stanley Crouch, essayist and critic. His latest book is "The Artificial White Man: Essays on Authenticity"
