About the Author

Lance Strate studied with Neil Postman at New York University, where he earned his Ph.D., and is currently Professor of Communication and Media Studies at Fordham University. The author of Echoes and Reflections and On the Binding Biases of Time, he is a recipient of the Media Ecology Association's Walter Ong Award for Career Achievement in Scholarship.


"When Neil Postman's Amusing Ourselves to Death is brought into the classroom, or given as a gift, or handed from one reader to another, a problem is created: into what frame should we place this book? For that's how unique it is. Lance Strate has solved that problem by writing a graceful and learned companion to Postman's original. It doubles as a biographical sketch of a great man and his intellectual times. It is also an act of love. And if you love the book it's about, you will be grateful for Strate's Amazing Ourselves to Death. I am. And I highly recommend it." (Jay Rosen, Professor of Journalism, New York University) "Lance Strate masterfully brings to a new generation, and a new century, Neil Postman's enligh-tening and essential insights into the ways that our uses of media reflect and reshape our society. He further shows how we can reclaim control, so we can use the ever-evolving media rather than letting them use us." (Deborah Tannen, University Professor and Professor of Linguistics, Georgetown University) "This book, I believe, will remain a foundational text in the field of educational technology. The content presented by the author is based on validated teaching and learning theories and reliable pedagogical principles. For those who are not familiar with Postman's body of work and that of his contemporaries, this homage is a useful compendium and foundation from which to examine emerging technologies and their impacts on culture and education." (Diane Gayeski, Educational Technology, January/February 2015)
