This is a huge, huge, huge book that could probably have been 1/4 as long. It took me a long time to finish because the farther away I get from being an undergrad, the less tolerance I have for Freudianism, postmodernist deconstruction, classical readings, and other intellectually questionable styles of writing. I'm more interested in looking at cultural studies through psychological or sociological spectrums, not through some sort of irreproducible vacuous Foucaultian "analysis."

There were some good essays in here, though, and it's a great book if you need to keep a door open or flatten out a wrinkled piece of paper.
