Amusing Ourselves To Death

By Postman, Neil




Originally published in 1985, Neil Postmans groundbreaking polemic about the corrosive effects of television on our politics and public discourse has been hailed as a twenty-first-century book published in the twentieth century. Now, with television joined by more sophisticated electronic mediafrom the Internet to cell phones to DVDsit has taken on even greater significance. Amusing Ourselves to Death is a prophetic look at what happens when politics, journalism, education, and even religion become subject to the demands of entertainment. It is also a blueprint for regaining controlof our media, so that they can serve our highest goals.

NEIL POSTMAN

Penguin (Non-Classics), December 2005. Paper Back. New. A profound, polemical analysis of television. Postman understand what few do, namely, that the fundamental issue is not content -- is this show too violent? is that show educational? -- but the medium itself. His explorations into the educational and social ramifications of sitting before a box of ever-changing colors are consistently illuminating.
