The 2012 eEdition of Brian Anse Patrick's National Rifle Association and the Media: The Motivating Force of Negative Coverage (Goatpower Publishing) has just been released on Amazon/Kindle for only $9.99.
The book contains a new foreword by the author and features a cover shot of Ohio super model Brooke Wagner. This is the groundbreaking book based on Dr. Patrick's dissertation research at University of Michigan that established him as national expert on the political mobilization of the new American Gun Culture.
"In releasing the eEdition," said Dr. Patrick, " I am concerned with affordability and access. Academic publishers sell their books at prohibitive prices mainly to university libraries. While this is fine, and I am proud to have my books in such collections, I would prefer making my research findings available to regular, real people who must spend only their own money to inform themselves. The new publishing media such as Amazon/Kindle have changed the informational sociology and made it easier for people to access materials that they need to interpret political reality for themselves. This is the true meaning of the word revolution."
