Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges doesn't mince words about celebrity culture. He called Michael Jackson's funeral "a variety show with a coffin," and noted, "The store we like best are 'real life' stories—early fame, wild success and then a long, bizarre, and macabre emotional train wreck." In Empire of Illusion, he exposes the high cost we pay for the substitution of such celebrity culture sadism, moral nihilism and illiteracy for cultural integrity and real civil obligations. This impassioned book will confirm your worst fears, but excite your imagination. Now in paperback.
