Ignaz J. Reilly - ein 'Wirrkopf von Gottes Gnaden, ein fetter Don Quijote, ein perverser Thomas von Aquin' und in der Tat einer der originellsten Helden, den die amerikanische Literatur je hervorgebracht hat. Eines Tages nun wird dieser sich bisher stoisch jeder produktiven Betätigung verweigernde Fleischberg von seiner Mutter gezwungen, sich nach einem Job umsehen. Reillys berufliche Odyssee führt ihn von einer heruntergekommenen Hosenfabrik - in der er das Problem der Ablage mit Hilfe des Papierkorbs löst und eine Revolte unter den schwarzen Arbeitern anzettelt - ins French Quarter von New Orleans, wo ihm ein fahrbare Wurststand anvertraut wird. Aber auch dieser Beruf bietet keine Zukunft, denn als Hot-Dog-Verkäufer ist er sein bester Kunde. Ignaz trägt sich indes bald mit neuen Plänen - Er wird eine Partei gründen, eine Partei der Sodomiten.

. . is the story of a young English lad, still in his teens who, between 1950 and 1952, underwent that rite of passage into adulthood called national service – but with a difference. Half of it was spent with the Welch Regiment, part of the Commonwealth Division of the United Nations forces in Korea. Luckily, it was during the quieter middle phase of that war, the Forgotten War and the last to be fought from trenches. He experienced moments of unexpected pleasure, ennui, abject terror, boredom, utter weariness and despair, sadness, joy, laughter and profound revelation all of which are part of this tale. There is some blood and guts but, through great good fortune, none of his personal experiencing. This is a story of how it was for one reasonably well educated boy sent halfway across the world on His/Her Majesties business to an uncertain fate. He returned a man – in one sense at least!

Fusing audience research and ethnography, the book presents a compelling account of women’s changing lives and identities in relation to the impact of the most popular media culture in everyday life: television. Within the historically-specific social conditions of Korean modernity, Youna Kim analyzes how Korean women of varying age and class group cope with the new environment of changing economical structure and social relations. The book argues that television is an important resource for women, stimulating them to research their own lives and identities. Youna Kim reveals Korean women as creative, energetic and critical audiences in their responses to evolving modernity and the impact of the West. Based on original empirical research, the book explores the hopes, aspirations, frustrations and dilemmas of Korean women as they try to cope with life beyond traditional grounds. Going beyond the traditional Anglo-American view of media and culture, this text will appeal to students and scholars of both Korean area studies and media and communications studies.
