Abstract:

"Everyone knows that the media surround us, but no one quite understands how this happened and what it has done to our lives. Critics and analysts focus on this show or that star, the latest Superbowl ad or twenty-four-hour news binge, but they miss the true import of our total immersion in a fast-moving torrent of sounds and images. As he did with television in Inside Prime Time and with the culture wars in The Twilight of Common Dreams, Todd Gitlin once again recasts the world we think we know. In Media Unlimited, a remarkable and original look at our media-glutted, speed-addicted world, he makes us stare, as if for the first time, at the biggest picture of all."--BOOK JACKET.
