Summary
"This collection of essays explores the interplay between popular culture and politics, using popular culture as a lens through which to view political life in the United States. Ranging from discussions including Murphy Brown, rap music, and censorship, the essays encourage critical thinking about the ways in which popular culture shapes, reflects, and responds to the political climate." "The core supposition is that the way we spend our free time can mold our expectations, world view, and attitudes toward others. Powerful ideas and themes can be found in sports, music, literature, and virtually every form of leisure activity. They build upon and reconfigure prior information and shape each person's identity and our political culture."--Jacket
