Kate Moss wears an inviting sexual pout in a Calvin Klein ad. The urban teens in Larry Clark's acclaimed film Kids have unsafe sex, use illegal drugs, and steal from their parents. Dangerous Minds, tells us that coloured students in Los Angeles can only be saved by an angelic, blow-dried Michelle Pfeiffer. Curt Cobain's suicide is held aloft as the archetypal example of teen alienation. What truth, if any, is contained in these depictions of today's youth? What message about our children is being transmitted? In Channel Surfing, cultural theorist Henry Giroux turns his gaze to this barrage of media images and interprets the message, a message that sells our children short by damming them to the preconceived role of alienated outcast. Surfing from one channel of communication to the next, Giroux builds up a fascinating, complex web of associations between characters in films, tarnished real-life teen idols, and sexualized presentations of nubile young models to show us the dark vision of our children that rides the airwaves and inhabits the print media.Channel Surfing, Henry Giroux's most fascinating and intriguing book yet, is sure to create controversy and debate at the same time
