Media Mania: Why Our Fear of Modern Media is Misplaced

Front Cover
We often blame the ills of society on the media: violent television programs, shock news stories, and the insidious influence of advertising. But how much effect do the media have on our thinking and actions and can we blame them for everything we think is wrong with modern society? In Media Mania, Hugh Mackay addresses these questions and others in an examination of the influence of the media in our lives.
