ISBN: 9780855274788. pp. 371. 8vo., measuring 6″ x 8.5″. Quarter navy-blue “leatherette” over paper boards with gilt lettering to the spine. Edgewear to the top two corners of the boards, internally the corners remain quite bright, clean, and unmarked with tight, sound binding; very good and housed in very good unclipped dustjcacket showing light edgewear, two small faint spots to the front panel (dustjacket now housed in protective mylar sleeve). Overall, very good. Hardcover. ”A total departure from previous writing about television, this book is the first ever to advocate that the medium is not reformable. Its problems are inherent in the technology itself and are so dangerous – to personal health and sanity, to the environment, and to democractic processes – that TV ought to be considered taboo and eliminated forever.” (#2242) $125.00
