What does it suggest to be a "citizen" at the present time, in an age of unbridled consumerism, terrorism, militarism, and multinationalism? during this passionate and astounding booklet, Toby Miller dares to respond to this question with the intensity of notion it merits. Fast-moving and far-ranging, Cultural Citizenship blends truth, concept, remark, and hypothesis in a fashion that consistently startles and engages the reader. even if he's unabashedly liberal in his politics, Miller is whatever yet slim minded. He seems to be at media insurance of September eleventh and the Iraq invasion in addition to "infotainment"—such as foodstuff and climate channels—to see how U.S. television is serving its voters as a part of "the international commodity chain." again and again revealing the crushing grip of the invisible hand of tv, Miller indicates us what now we have given up in our force to procure and to "belong." for a lot too lengthy, "cultural citizenship" has been an idea invoked with out content material. With the e-book of this publication, it has finally been given flesh and substance.
