From Library Journal:

The academic study of popular culture emerged in the United States at a time of intense political and cultural change, with influences including the Vietnam War and the advent of second-wave feminism. These 13 articles depict the field in terms of the lives of its founders, some of whom, like editor Browne, are among the authors. Biographical data on most of the subjects appear in traditional reference works, but here each life is recounted in a spirit of tribute, frequently lightened by humor. A few of the articles, though, amount to no more than fleshed-out curricula vitae. Having arisen in part as a reaction against the New Criticism, the field is rooted in democratic values, yet a degree of defensiveness persists in disputes about the legitimacy of studying "popular" phenomena. (One author swipes at "the evident snobbery of Jean Baudrillard and Umberto Eco.") Scholars and aficionados of popular culture will enjoy these personable, informative biographies.?Dean C. Rowan, Whittier
