Publisher's Synopsis

Are we on the verge of culture-death? Using examples from America's past and present, Postman makes convincing cases that we are moving not towards Orwell's vision of the future but towards Huxley's Brave New World in which people become addicted to the technologies that take away their capacity to think.
