By Toby Miller

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 spectacular booklet, Toby Miller dares to reply to this question with the intensity of suggestion it merits. Fast-moving and far-ranging, Cultural Citizenship blends truth, thought, remark, and hypothesis in a fashion that constantly startles and engages the reader. even supposing he's unabashedly liberal in his politics, Miller is whatever yet slim minded. He appears at media insurance of September eleventh and the Iraq invasion in addition to "infotainment"—such as nutrients and climate channels—to see how U.S. television is serving its voters as a part of "the worldwide commodity chain." again and again revealing the crushing grip of the invisible hand of tv, Miller indicates us what we've got given up in our force to obtain and to "belong." for much too lengthy, "cultural citizenship" has been an idea invoked with out content material. With the ebook of this e-book, it has eventually been given flesh and substance.
