Description

In A Moment of Danger: Critical Studies in the History of U.S. Communication Since World War II, Janice Peck and Inger L. Stole have collected sixteen essays that examine the remarkable role that media have played in post-WWII U.S. history. From an examination of the impact that the cold war and Senator McCarthy had on media content in the 1950s to an analysis of the role that Oprah Winfrey has played in shaping understandings of race in American culture, A Moment of Danger offers a wide array of critical studies, all of which, however, aim at thinking carefully not only about the way in which the modes of media keep us in contact with the world, but also about how they shape the way we understand ourselves and our world.
