Paul Goodman Critiques the Media
Edited by Taylor Stoehr
Paul Goodman challenges us to respond to the dominant media representations that pare away complex truths to createthe bold, simplified images that controlling systems require to maintain and justify their existences.

Where remnants of original cultures exist, they are being marginalized, packaged as artifacts, and marketed as nostalgia.
