On Television

Leading dissident intellectual Pierre Bourdieu shows how, far from reflecting the tastes of the majority, television—particularly TV journalism—imposes ever-lower levels of political and social discourse on us all.


“This unremitting assault on the impact and pretensions of television demolishes conventional arguments.”
The Times Literary Supplement
“Cogently argued. . . . Withering.”
USA Today
“Illuminating. . . . Vivid and clearheaded.”
The New York Times
