Review:

"This edited collection brings together some of the leading theoreticians and researchers doing critical cultural analysis in the U.S. today. The range of selections is impressive. It includes both important theoretical pieces that define the area of critical cultural inquiry and exemplary studies that apply critical methods to the study of various media texts. Both journalism and popular entertainment fare are analyzed. This is a fine collection to illustrate the powerful work being done in cultural studies today.'' --Ellen Wartella, University of Texas at Austin
