The Literary Agenda

Jonathan Rose

The Literary Agenda

  • Addresses some of the biggest questions of the internet and digital age: What should we be reading? Can we trust what we read in the mass media? Can we use the Internet to find out the truth?
  • Surveys the history of independent sceptical reading and explores censorship, surveillance, 'fake news', and mass manipulation through the media
  • Distills a large body of scholarship on reading
  • Written in accessible, engaging, and often humorous style
