4.0 out of 5 stars Pop Culture Must, February 6, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Make Room for TV: Television and the Family Ideal in Postwar America (Paperback)
This book is not so much about what was ON TV so much as it is about how those programs reflected the American Family, sometimes in a kind of fun-house mirror. Americans invited the box into their homes, bringing the public sphere into the private sphere. In doing so they changed more than the layout of their living rooms. This book is a must-read for any student of Popular Culture, Television History or Post-War American History.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than buying at school, March 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Make Room for TV: Television and the Family Ideal in Postwar America (Paperback)
Took an American Studies class at CSUF and needed this book. I believe it was $10 cheaper to buy online, and considering the prices at those stores, it's always nice to know you can find prices that aren't so ridiculous. The book came promptly, was packaged nicely, and the condition was as described.
