"Excellent work! Great teaching tool!"--Terrence M. Bresnahan, John F. Kennedy University
"As brilliant as usual. . . . addresses important theoretical concerns on the issue of culture and market."--Chakarin Komolsiri, SUNY at Binghamton
"Raises some very provocative points on American political culture and its origins."--Jack Corbett, Lewis and Clark College
"Excellent book--good analysis of an increasingly important area of social and cultural life."--Jeff Ferrell, Regis College
"In this important study, Herbert Schiller focuses his attention on topics of major significance that are far too easily ignored. He develops a powerful, cogent, and persuasive case that concentrated power over the private economy is increasingly translated into domination over every crucial
aspect of social and cultural life, depriving democratic forms of substantive meaning. These are crucial features of the modern world that we ignore at our peril."--Noam Chomsky
"Schiller's account of the privatization of culture is an essential antidote to the prevalent notion of the 'free marketplace of ideas.' His powerful arguments challenge conventional thinking and pose basic issues long missing from the scholarly and political agenda."--George Gerbner,
University of Pennsylvania
"The book itself admirably fulfills the promise of its name. It does have a whole slew of fine quotations, all carefully documented, which catch the clever right-wing culture designers with their intellectual pants down....Schiller thus clearly grasps the subtle yet pervasive connections
between anti-radicalism and the establishment of a consumerist culture in this country....His analysis is as penetrating and hard-hitting as the documentation he presents....Schiller's book is invaluable for its careful documentation, and its vigorous analysis of how monopoly capitalism has cemented
its control of the United States, and now much of the rest of the world too."--People's Culture
"Thought-provoking....A penetrating and timely defense of democratic expression and free access to information."--Stuart Ewen, Hunter College, City University of New York
"Brilliant book. I use it in every class I teach."--Anthony Arnove, Brown University
