Editorial Reviews

Review

"In this collection of essays, Henry Giroux demonstrates once again that he is one of our leading public political intellectuals. Every page is filled with the passion of his commitment both to social and economic justice and to theoretical rigor. This collection combines insightful readings of how specific films operate in the current social context and original reflections on the central theoretical and methodological issues facing cultural studies today. This is a book that will move both students and teachers." Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill "Henry Giroux is one of our most penetrating cultural critics. In Breaking in to the Movies, he demonstrates how pleasure and power, entertainment and public pedagogy, are always intertwined in the culture of global capitalism. Giroux offers a refreshing approach in a field often characterized by a paucity of intellectual imagination. This is real cultural criticism." Sut Jhally, University of Massachusetts
