In analyzing the decline of the humanities on college campuses, Marc covers a wide range of issues, including political correctness, the growing tolerance of academic cheating, and institutionalized grade inflation.

In this latest effort, Marc elucidates the depreciation of humanities-based liberal arts study in American universities, largely a consequence of television's challenge to traditional notions of literacy and memory.

Published in 1995, this is an engaging diatribe against the effect of television on American youth, and in particular on the abilities of those young people who enter humanities courses in college.

I don't have much a problem with his thesis, which basically boils down to nitwit children versus his professorial magnificence. But, man, the book was published in 1995, which means it was written in the early 1990s. And he is complaining about television. Television!

If Mr Marc is still around, he must be a walking fireball of rage by now. If mere television upset him 20 years ago, what does he think about the internet, twitter, facebook, etc. Recommended for its historical value.

I am a doctoral student in English and I teach multiple sections of Freshman Composition. This is the first book this presents a recognizable picture of the contemporary classroom: a place where literacy is taught as a specialist's skill to students immersed in television culture. If you are interested in the future of reading and writing, I recommend this book highly. It is also hilariously funny.
