the Rise of Violence in an Electronic Age. (EN-0293)

Editorial reviews from amazon.com.
The failure of increasing numbers of young people to
attain even minimum levels of literacy signals a catastrophe at the deepest
levels of our culture. A Is for Ox is an important and impassioned work that
both proves this conclusion and suggests what can be done to change it.
From the Publisher
"A brilliant, disturbing reflection on the collapsing
moral order of post-modern America. If literacy is the wellspring of
selfhood, as Sanders makes clear, our aggressive, image-addicted society is
unwittingly committing cultural suicide."--Mike Davis
