The Slumbering Masses addresses the phenomenon of sleep and sleeplessness in the U.S., tracing the influence of medicine and industrial capitalism on Americans' sleeping habits since the nineteenth century. Drawing on untapped archival sources and ethnographic research with people who experience and treat sleep abnormalities, Matthew J. Wolf-Meyer analyzes and critiques how sleep and its supposed disorders are understood and treated.
