Media, Education and America's Counter-Culture Revolution is an adaptation and amalgamation of some of the author's speeches, papers, and essays during his service in several federal government communication and education posts during the 1960s and 1970s. Dealing with the use and misuse of media and their impact--or lack of it--on our country's political, cultural, and educational development, this book shows how far we fell short of what we might have done with the media, and suggests what we might still do.

Mass media has become an integral part of the human experience. News travels around the world in a split second affecting people in other countries in untold ways. Although being on top of the news may be good, at least for news junkies, mass media also transmits values or the lack thereof, condenses complex events and thoughts to simplified sound bites and often ignores the essence of an event or story. The selective bibliography gathers the books and magazine literature over the previous ten years while providing access through author, title and subject indexes.

From gender issues in Desperate Housewives, to race in Ugly Betty, gender biases in video games, and portrayals of the American family in Extreme Makeover, to analyzes of new genres like fandom and social media - no other book is so successful in engaging students in critical media scholarship. By encouraging students to critically analyze those media they already interact with for pleasure, and by editing the articles, Gail Dines and Jean Humez are able to make sophisticated concepts and theories accessible and interesting to undergraduate students.
