Ronald K.L. Collins and David M. Skover
The Death of Discourse, Second Edition
Durham, N.C. : Carolina Academic Press, c2005

KF4772.Z9C65 2005

In the second edition of The Death of Discourse, authors Ronald K.L. Collins and David M. Skover propose that today's mass media is exploiting the First Amendment in order to "dumb down" the American public. The book proposes that the First Amendment needs to be reinterpreted so that it can effective govern the media of the 21st century, especially in regards to television, advertising, and pornography. The authors see a vast gap between the United State's current speech practices and its' historic speech principles. Like the book's first edition, the second edition includes thought provoking examples of the exploits of America's mass media. A new Foreword examines recent events such as the American mass commercial entertainment culture after September 11th.
