About this title


Book by Jacobsen, John Kurt

From the Publisher:

"An inspired, iconoclastic work of social science. Jacobsen utilizes the theories of Paul Feyerabend to launch brilliant guerrilla assaults on the powers that be in several walks of American life, from the stars of academe to our political leaders to the icons of American liberalism in public television. He also presents a fascinating and unusual account of how technology affects our lives -- but above all, how dominant elites want us to think technology affects our lives. When you catch Jacobsen's drift amid his clever dead reckonings, you will catch up with a new way to think about our world." -- Bruce Cummings, John Evans Professor of International History and Politics, Northwestern University POSTSCRIPTS: POLITICIZATION AND HISTORICAL IMAGERY

Television, Ideology, and the Korean War 'Schindler's List', American Culture, and the Politics of the Holocaust
