An erudite and witty collection of Umberto eco's essays on mass culture from the 1960s through the 1980s, including major pieces which have not been translated into English before. The discussion is framed by opposing characterisations of current intellectuals as apocalyptic and opposed to almost culture, less integrated intellectuals, so much a part of mass culture as to be unaware of serving it. Organised into four main parts "mass culture: Apocalypse postponed," "mass media and the limits of communication," "the rise and fall of counterculture's," and "in search of Italian genius," Eco looks at a variety of topics and cultural productions, including the world of Charlie Brown, distinctions between highbrow and lowbrow, the future of literacy, Chinese comic strips, where the counterculture is exist, Fellini's Ginger and Fred and the Italian genius industry." -- rear fold over blurb Size: 8vo - over 7�" - 9�" tall.
