Über diesen Titel:
Inhaltsangabe: ban, tax, and harass smokers into nonexistence. Published in 2004, "Dissecting Antismokers' Brains" remains ahead of its time and retains a startling freshness in its ideas and theories. The propaganda methods exposed in their early development have grown and are being used even more intensively in the ads, press releases, and guidebooks of antismoking advocacy groups today; the stonewalling techniques of researchers examined in McFadden's more recent "TobakkoNacht -- The Antismoking Endgame" are shown in their birthing forms as he attempts communication with advocates; the abuse of our love for our children continues to be exploited through ad campaigns where evil wisps of smoke creep out of electrical outlets and through open windows to attack tiny tots in their nurseries; and his warnings of coming campaigns to extend smoking bans outdoors and to expand similar conditioning techniques to the control of alcohol and fast foods have proven far too true. For those seeking an in-depth but extraordinarily comfortable and readable examination of the development and continuation of the antismoking movement, this book is essential. Its focus on the combination of psychology, propaganda analysis, and the misuse of science makes it a solid volume for college courses in the areas of social change, scientific ethics, and the use and limits of governmental control of citizen behavior. At the same time its clear presentation the basic scientific and statistical arguments at the root of the antismoking movement makes it accessible to anyone who's ever wondered how smoking moved from being a pleasant and accepted, although arguably unhealthy, activity into its current state of being regularly presented as both antisocial and highly undesirable as a character trait. "Dissecting Antismokers' Brains" has been, and remains, an essential volume for anyone disturbed by, wishing to understand, or wanting to fight the development and growth of governmental control over personal life choices and behaviors.
