Distant Suffering: Morality, Media And Politics -by- Luc Boltanski -translated- Graham Burchell (1999). ISBN 0521659531. The author examines the moral and political implications for a spectator of the distant suffering of others as presented through the media; e.g. what are the morally acceptable responses to the sight of suffering on television, when the viewer cannot act directly to affect the circumstances in which the suffering takes place. Boltanski argues that spectators can actively involve themselves and others by talking about what they have seen and how they were affected by it, and examines three rhetorical 'topics' available for the expression of spectator's response to suffering. Used second hand paperback book. 246 pages. (Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1999) Light scuffing on covers, else very good condition. Weight 420 grams.
