This is must reading for information professionals who maintain some sort of professional literacy.... The book provides a concise and poignant 50-year history of cultural and informational institutions in the United States.... All who are concerned about these issues must study this book."

Format: Paperback
I am a graduate student pursuing my MLS at the University of North Texas and have read this book in the course of doing personal research for a final paper; I would recommend this book especially to other library students like myself and working librarians & library directors...We LIS people have a lot to learn from the field of Communications, especially from this author, Herbert I. Schiller. Schiller writes eloquently and with passion, and if you like Noam Chomsky's political writings, you will LOVE Herbert I. Schiller. Sadly, I read elsewhere on amazon.com that Schiller passed away in 2000. This is a great loss, but others will, indeed must, carry on where he left off.
Although this book was completed in 1996, it is still just as relevant in 2001, particularly with the "war fever" infecting this country en masse. Schiller cuts through rhetorical PR-BS and gives you the straight dope. This is REAL media criticism and it puts theory-intoxicated wankers like Jean Baudrillard et. al. to shame. PoMo criticism of media is seriously deficient, and Terry Eagleton & Christopher Norris have demonstrated elsewhere why this is so. Herbert I. Schiller's writings on media embodies the critical edge and sober re-recognition of the nature of real existing capitalism in the so-called "Information Age". The picture is not a pretty one. Resistance is NOT futile. Read! Learn! Dissent & Disseminate as widely as possible!
