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
