Creasing to the spine, light bumping and edgewear to the covers.; 8vo 8"-9" tall; 297 pages; BREAKING IN TO THE MOVIES brings together Henry A. Giroux's best-known essays from the last twenty years, centering on important subjects on the cultural studies and pop culture agenda, including violence, race, class, gender, identity, politics, and children's culture. The volume charts his career as one of the most astute observers of the Hollywood tradition, from early reflections on NORMA RAE and LOOKING FOR MISTER GOODBAR to ground-breaking analyses of more recent movies such as PULP FICTION, DEAD POETS SOCIETY, DANGEROUS MINDS, and FIGHT CLUB. By addressing the profound pedagogical role of film in contemporary society, Giroux demonstrates how it dramatically shapes the way young people come to terms with today's most charged social issues.
