More interesting-looking books have just come out, written by people I know and like. Act quick and you could get a copy for yourself. I’ve purchased TWO copies each of new books by David Von Drehle and Eric Deggans:
Deggans, the extremely sharp and prolific TV/media critic for the Tampa Bay Times, is out with Race-Baiter: How the Media Wields Dangerous Words to Divide a Nation. This book is not a rant or harangue. This is smart, diligent inquiry and analysis about an issue that vexes social progress and fair media.
