In this utterly original look at our modern “culture of performance,” de Zengotita shows how media are creating self-reflective environments, custom made for each of us. From Princess Diana’s funeral to the prospect of mass terror, from oral sex in the Oval Office to cowboy politics in distant lands, from high school cliques to marital therapy, from blogs to reality TV to the Weather Channel, Mediated takes us on an original and astonishing tour of every department of our media-saturated society. The implications are personal and far-reaching at the same time.

Thomas de Zengotita is a contributing editor at Harper'sand the Nation,and holds a Ph.D. in anthropology from Columbia University, New York. He teaches at the Dalton School and at the Draper Graduate Program at NYU.
