Summary
"This book posits that Generation X is the first to be defined by its relationship with entertainment. This relationship, the author argues, is reciprocal: for the first time, entertainment is created with adolescent consumers in mind who in turn develop a new mode of subjectivity that is informed by the popular culture they consume"-- Provided by publisher.
