Man Alone: Alienation in Modern Society. Eric and Mary Josephson, eds. New York: Dell, 1962.

An anthology of essays and selections, "from Karl Marx to James Baldwin, from Dostoyevsky to Ignazio Silone," on alienation. Includes B. Bettelheim, "Joey" (q.v.[1]) and selections from L. Mumford, C. Wright Mills, and William H. Whyte. An excellent introd. to the concept of alienation, an important theme in much dystopian fiction.
