Postman shows what has happened to public discourse in this age of entertainment. Television has conditioned us to tolerate visually entertaining material measured out in spoonfuls of time, to the detriment of rational public discourse and reasoned public affairs. In this eloquent book, Postman alerts us to the real dangers of this state of affairs, and offers suggestions about resisting the media onslaught. Paper. 184 pages.
