Elephant In The Room
A Great book, rather let down by the cover that looks like a kids chapter book. Eviatar Zerubavel sheds new light on the social and political underpinnings of silence and denial - Drawing on examples from newspapers and comedy shows to novels, children's stories, and film, the book travels back and forth across different levels of social life, and from everyday moments to large-scale historical events. At its core, The Elephant in the Room helps us understand why we ignore truths that are known to all of us.
