"Henry Giroux's gripping book on the spectacle of terrorism gives new meaning to 'shock and awe'. It is one of those must-read books that offers a deadly accurate assessment of what is becoming the new consumer culture - a consumption of death and destruction that has virtually paralyzed us in the face of war and violence, from Iraq to New Orleans."
(Robin D.G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination)
"Henry Giroux is one of the sharpest cultural critics today. His new book is an important intervention on media and spectacles. It shows us the depth of the dark side, only to conclude that the same media may be deployed in recovery against the social fragmentation caused by fear and cosumerism, which is essential to bringing the country back to the path of decency and justice."
(Arif Dirlik, University of Oregon)
