Summary
"Using approaches from feminism and cultural studies, this work explores the contradictory role that popular culture plays in the construction of gender, class, race, age, and sexual meanings. Christian-Smith dissects the conservative political themes underlying thirty-four teen romance novels, demonstrating how their flowery versions of romance and femininity actually inscribe white middle class gender ideology and class tensions."--Book desc. amazon.com
