Originally published in 1985, Neil Postmanâ€™s 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 mediaâ€”from the Internet to cell phones to DVDsâ€”it 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 ofÂ entertainment. It is also a blueprint for regaining controlof our media, so that they can serve our highest goals.
