I bought the Kobo ebook in search of scholarly text-based dialogue on the subject that would be relevant to a popular-culture paper I'm writing. I found it. Apart from one almost nonsensical theory paper, this anthology is interesting, thought-provoking, and relevant to modern experience and perceptions.
