Read full description of the books:
This is a weird book, maybe interesting for its historical value, but not a whole lot else. Who could expect otherwise from a 45-year-old book subtitled "The New American Revolution Has Begun"? Revel argues that the conditions of the 1960s-1970s in America suggest that the U.S.A. is in the best position to initiate the "second world revolution"; that is, unifying the entire world under one government. That's not to say that America takes over the world, as Revel is at least somewhat nuanced in his usage of "revolution." But he also argues that television and other mass media could be a driver of the revolution as people are increasingly connected by "information," not "propaganda." As of 2016: so much for that. Overall, an overly optimistic anachronism.

Read information about the authorJean-François Revel was a French politician, journalist, author, prolific philosopher and member of the Académie française since June 1998.
He was best known for his books Without Marx or Jesus: The New American Revolution Has Begun, The Flight from Truth : The Reign of Deceit in the Age of Information and his 2002 book Anti-Americanism, one year after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. In the latter book, Revel criticised those Europeans who argued that the United States had brought about the terrorist attacks upon itself through misguided foreign policies. He wrote thus: "Obsessed by their hatred and floundering in illogicality, these dupes forget that the United States, acting in her own self-interest, is also acting in the interest of us Europeans and in the interests of many other countries, threatened, or already subverted and ruined, by terrorism." In 1975 he delivered the Huizinga Lecture in Leiden, The Netherlands, under the title: La tentation totalitaire (The Totalitarian Temptation).
