Examining the 1950s debate over the media and juvenile delinquency, this study shows how the development of youth culture and the rise of a mass-media society became intertwined and confused.

"A marvelous exploration of the connections between culture and behavior in modern America...[The author] deeply illuminates our understanding of the contemporary US."--William M. Tuttle, Jr., University of Kansas "[A] fascinating book...An enthralling exploration of reactions against popular culture...Raises valuable questions about whether the mass media should initiate or merely reinforce the fantasies they depict."--The New York Times Book Review
