"The Dust of Death" is a book written by Os Guinness and first published in 1973. The book is a powerful critique of the countercultural movements of the 1960s and 70s, and their failure to provide a meaningful alternative to mainstream society. Guinness argues that these movements, despite their rejection of traditional values and institutions, ultimately failed to create a new social order, and instead left behind a "dust of death" - a sense of emptiness, disillusionment, and despair.

Drawing on his background as a sociologist and theologian, Guinness offers a penetrating analysis of the social and cultural trends of the time, and explores the underlying philosophical and spiritual issues that gave rise to the counterculture. He argues that the movement's rejection of traditional values and institutions was based on a flawed understanding of human nature and the nature of society, and that the movement's ultimate failure was rooted in this flawed worldview.

With its incisive analysis and thought-provoking arguments, "The Dust of Death" remains a classic work of social criticism and a valuable resource for anyone seeking to understand the cultural and social trends of the late 20th century. The book's insights remain highly relevant today, as we continue to grapple with the challenges of creating a meaningful and fulfilling social order in an increasingly complex and uncertain world.
