"Lost Icons is a sobering inquiry into the structures that support (or fail to support) the development of authentic selfhood and the mainenance of a just society..Lost Icons is a probing cultural analysis, with hints that one of the deep impulses of the essay is to fundamental theology, drawing as it does upon the methods and resources of sociology, antroplogy, history, media studies, psychology, political science, philosophy, literary theory, and theology. This book ought to be read by anyone interested in the breadth and depth of the intellectual life of the Archbishop of Canterbury; it deserves the srious attention of anyone who thinks critically about the construction of (post) modern selfhood; and it holds intriguing possibilities for those who study the church's mission in contemporary North Atlantic societies, since Williams contends that the church's tradition contains resources capable of addressing many of the problems he identifies in these societies." Derek N. Anderson, Loyola University Chicago, Illinois, for Anglican Theological Review--Sanford Lakoff
