JAMES BOWMAN has written for the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, The New Criterion and other publications. He was the American editor of the Times Literary Supplement of London and is currently a resident scholar at the Ethics and Public Policy Institute.
James Bowman provides a scintillating and fast-paced anatomy of the mainstream media self-generated demise. Media Madness looks behind the headlines to examine mainstream media’s governing myths.
The importance of honor is present in the earliest records of civilization. Today, while it may still be an essential concept in Islamic cultures, in the West, honor has been disparaged and dismissed as obsolete. In this lively and authoritative book, James Bowman traces the curious and fascinating history of this ideal, from the Middle Ages through the Enlightenment and to the killing fields of World War I and the despair of Vietnam.
