My Media, Education, and Gender prof contributed an article to this book. He assigned the article as one of our readings, but he did not make us buy the entire book, providing a photocopy instead.

Great read for any teacher looking to use pop culture/media to help students think critically about issues of social justice, tolerance, equality, etc. Would highly recommend this to any of my educator friends.
An important book, you can dip in and read chapters that interest you or dive in for the whole book.
