Herbert Schiller, long one of America's leading critics of the communications industry, here offers a salvo in the battle over information. In Information Inequality he explains how privatization and the corporate economy directly affect our most highly prized democratic institutions: schools and libraries, media, and political culture. A master media-watcher, Schiller presents a crisp and far-reaching indictment of the "data deprivation" corporate interests are inflicting on the social fabric.
Herbert I. Schiller has taught in several universities in the United States and around the world. Currently, he is Visiting Professor at New York University and a member of the graduate faculty of the University of California, San Diego, where he is Professor Emeritus of Communication.
