by David Brooks

Condition: Used - Good


Simon & Schuster, March 2001. Trade Paperback . Used - Good.

Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class And How They Got There is a book by David Brooks, first published in 2000. The word bobo, Brooks's most famous coinage, is a portmanteau of the words bourgeois and bohemian. The term is used by Brooks to describe the 1990s descendants of the yuppies. Often of the corporate upper class, they rarely oppose mainstream society, claim highly tolerant views of others, purchase expensive and exotic items, and believe American society to be meritocratic.

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"
