Cambodia
A Book for People Who Find Television Too Slow
By Brian Fawcett

In this disturbing collection of investigative fictions, Brian Fawcett asserts that the informational white noise of the Global Village is creating a cultural and intellectual breakdown that will eventually lead to the disappearance of local and individual identity. He argues that under the glitzy surfaces of television and the information “revolution” lie the same intentions that ran amok in Khmer Rouge Cambodia: the extermination of memory and imagination.
