Power Plays, Power Works

Author(s): John Fiske

Social Science | Media

In this work, John Fiske analyzes the cultural wars in the United States today. The terrain over which these battles are being fought is charted in a series of case studies: black talk-radio; Elvis fans; homeless men; and TV sport. Fiske is critical of the elites in the United States today, but finds an optimistic voice when reviewing the imaginative use of evasion, reflection and resistance by those who reject their authority.
