Start your review of Discrimination And Popular Culture
Steve Dewey
This is an early entry in the study of popular culture, so is not beset by theory or post-modernism, and thus is an easy-enough read. It is a collection of relatively non-academic essays, published in 1964. Given the publication date, the essays reflect the popular culture of the early 1960s or even the late 1950s. Even The Beatles are so new they are only mentioned in a footnote. The essays have, therefore, little connection with the cultural topics that would fascinate subsequent studies.

Sparked new interest on issues of discrimination for me. A good read, though tedious and too verbose for my liking.
