The Image: A Guide to Pseudo-Events in America - Boorstin, Daniel J

The author introduces the seminal concept of "pseudo-events"--such as press conferences and presidential debates, which are staged solely for publicity--and redefines celebrity as "a person who is known for his well-knownness". The result is an essential resource that distinguishes the deceptions of our culture from its few enduring truths.
