“Earnest, relentless, and frequently compelling, Samuels offers a sobering analysis of some of the ways that cultural studies, new media, and the university itself have failed our hopes for democracy. You won't agree with everything in this book, but you'll pop onto his blog to argue with him about it.”--Marc Bousquet, Author of How The University Works: Higher Education and the Low-Wage Nation
