[ED: Taschenbuch / Paperback], [PU: Penguin US], AUSFÜHRLICHERE BESCHREIBUNG: Originally published in 1985, Neil Postman'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.

But time has proved Postman right. He accurately foresaw that the young would inherit a frantically all-consuming media culture of glitz, gossip, and greed." -Camille Paglia "A brillant, powerful and important book. This is an indictment that Postman has laid down and, so far as I can see, an irrefutable one." -Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World "He starts where Marshall McLuhan left off, constructing his arguments with the resources of a scholar and the wit of a raconteur." - The Christian Science Monitor "This comes along at exactly the right moment.... We must confront the challenge of his prophetic vision." -Jonathan Kozol ABOUT THE AUTHORS For the last third of the twentieth century, Neil Postman was one of America's foremost social critics and education and communications theorists, and his ideas and accessibility won him an international following. An influential and revered teacher, he was professor for more than forty years at New York University, where he founded the renowned Media Ecology program. Blessed with an unusually far-reaching mind, he authored more than twenty books, producing major works on education (Teaching as a Subversive Activity, The End of Education), childhood (The Disappearance of Childhood), language (Crazy Talk, Stupid Talk), news (How to Watch TV News, with Steve Powers) and technology's impact on culture (Technopoly). Amusing Ourselves to Death remains his most reverberating and widely read book, translated into more than a dozen languages. He was educated at the State University of New York at Fredonia and Columbia University. He died in October 2003, at the age of seventy-two. Andrew Postman, Neil's son, is the author of five books, including the novel Now I Know Everything. For several years he was a monthly columnist for Glamour and his work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and New York Magazine, among numerous publications.

Since the arrival of television, the hours we spend watching meaningless entertainment have grown enormously. And all at the expense of politics and public discourse. Instead of actively and critically engaging with information, people nowadays mostly receive information in a much more passive way.

And all at the expense of politics and public discourse. Instead of actively and critically engaging with information, people nowadays mostly receive information in a much more passive way. Amusing Ourselves to Death was first published in 1985, but with the ever-growing influence of television and the arrival other electronic media ? like the internet - the topic is more significant than ever. Neil Postman warns us for the influence of entertainment and the effects that these media have on intellectual discourse. Also, television is teaching us to expect life to be entertaining rather than interesting and teaches us to live a decontextualized life. A life in which events are seen as unconnected and random, without any significance towards a larger picture. Postman thus challenged us to look at subjects like politics, journalism and educations and how these subjects change because of the demands of the entertainment business. How do mass media like television transform the world we live in? And, more importantly, how can we withstand this dangerous process, take control of our media and, by doing so, shape the mass media to serve our highest goals?Taal: Engels; Oorspronkelijke titel: Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business; Afmetingen: 0x0x0 mm; Gewicht: 163,00 gram; Verschijningsdatum: december 2005; Druk: 1; ISBN10: 014303653X; ISBN13: 9780143036531; , Engelstalig | Paperback | 2005, Sociale wetenschappen, Antropologie, Kunst & Cultuur, Cultuurgeschiedenis, Kunst & Cultuur, Film- & Televisiewetenschappen, Mens & Maatschappij, Maatschappelijk, Uitvoerende kunst, Massamedia (print & online), Sociale wetenschappen, Sociologie, Uitvoerende kunst, Televisie, Kunst & Cultuur, Uitvoerende kunst, Penguin Putnam Inc
