From the publisher:
In this witty, often terrifying work of cultural criticism, the author of Amusing Ourselves to Death chronicles our transformation into a Technopoly: a society that no longer merely uses technology as a support system but instead is shaped by it—with radical consequences for the meanings of politics, art, education, intelligence, and truth.

His interest in education was long-standing, beginning with his experience as an elementary and secondary school teacher. He died in 2003.
