In MORE: The Vanishing of Scale in an Over-the-Top Nation communications professor and former journalist Ronald Bishop examines the media's encouragement of exaggerated behavior and the obsession with triviality in contemporary culture.
In this first book-length investigation of the media's obsession with triviality, cultural critic Ronald Bishop playfully mixes personal narratives with an abundance of examples from television shows, news stories, editorials, advertisements, books, and movies, to demonstrate how media promotes the idea that the notion of scale must be abandoned to achieve success and happiness in modern society.
