Project Censored’s Summer Reading
A landmark study of how media rhetoric influences public opinion during wartime.
With another election cycle underway, this slim classic proves timely and insightful once again.
Essential reading for all who care about the commons, and a thoughtful challenge to those committed to non-violence.
For anyone seeking to understand America today, how we got here, and where we unfortunately seem to be heading, cultural historian and social critic Morris Berman offers an unflinching and timely explanation. In an election year, this ought to be required reading.
The pseudo-events that Boorstin described fifty years ago now dominate our media landscape from “reality” TV to what passes for “news.” We might still heed his warnings about America’s obsession with celebrityhood and its consequences. In 2012, The Image reads like a user’s manual for the illusion that is America.
Benjamin challenges the legality and morality of the US’s escalating use of drones to kill its enemies, and she documents global opposition to their use—topics glossed in the corporate media.
Important documentation on the history and contemporary reality of the deep politics of the international drug trade and the US war machine.
Loo’s work is an adventure in cognitive rebellion, helping us understand the socio-economic forces destroying our world.
A case study of censorship and resistance, the late Ray Bradbury’s novel inspired our introduction to the forthcoming Censored 2013.
The good-news folks at YES! bring together some of the best and brightest minds and activists to remind us, the 99%, that we are the change agents for a better world and that our time for action is now. Read it and Occupy!
A breakthrough in thinking… Sacred Economics explores time-tested and emerging concepts of the new economics, including local and negative interest currencies, resource-based economics, gift economies and the restoration of the commons.
A sweeping vision of how to reform our global economic and political structures, break away from empire, and build a world based on ecological sustainability and human rights.
The “sourcebook for the media revolution.”
