The Daily Planet: A Critic on the Capitalist Culture Beat

by

The Daily Planet: A Critic on the Capitalist Culture Beat Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Daily Planet is a long-awaited selection of Patricia Aufderheide's most important critical essays, updated and organized thematically to demonstrate the breadth of her thinking on media and film, public telecommunications policy, and contemporary society. The result is a pithy and provocative exploration of "the culture of daily life under capitalism".<P>Here, Aufderheide demonstrates criticism that is both activist and analytical. She probes the processes that shape our culture by examining diverse subjects, including the struggle to create quality children's television programming, the meaning of Paul Harvey, the evolution of the war film over the past thirty years, and the ways journalism is changed by the Internet and other new technologies.<P>Throughout, Aufderheide foregrounds democratic values, displaying the penetrating insights that have made her a leading public intellectual and commentator on contemporary culture.
