Homer Simpson Goes to Washington : American Politics Through Popular Culture Hardback
Edited by Joseph J. Foy
Americans are turning to popular culture to make sense of the American political system, a trend that explains the success of television shows such as ""The Simpsons"", ""The West Wing"", and ""The Daily Show"" and films such as ""Wag the Dog"".
In ""Homer Simpson Goes to Washington"", Joseph J. Foy has assembled a multidisciplinary team of scholars to tackle common assumptions about government and explain fundamental concepts such as civil rights, democracy, and ethics.
This volume will appeal to students of American politics and to readers with an interest in current events or popular culture.
