No Sense of Place

The Impact of Electronic Media on Social Behavior

Joshua Meyrowitz

Meyrowitz addresses the question of how television has affected our everyday lives by advancing the theory that television and other electronic media create new social situations that no longer depend on where we are or who is "with" us. Television, he claims, has lifted the veils of secrecy between children and adults, men and women, and politicians and average citizens, resulting in a series of revolutionary changes that have blurred the distinctions of age, gender, and authority.
