Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
In yet another groundbreaking work, Deborah Tannen will use her enormous communication and linguistic talents to demonstrate how modern society has embraced a "culture of argument". Tannen tells how the media, educators, and politicians give credence to many harmful and false ideas just in the effort to present both sides of every story. Tannen argues that there aren't two sides to every story, and that indeed some things are historical fact. To give certain ideas even a chance to be heard and presented as believable points of view serves no one and harms everyone (such as those people who argue that the Holocaust never happened). If we keep this culture in vogue, she says that the idea of truth will no longer be considered an absolute.

Accessible, hard-hitting and surely controversial, "The Argument Culture" will return Deborah Tannen to the top of the bestseller list.
