The twelve essays in Modernity and Mass Culture provide a broad and captivating overview of what has come to be known as culture studies." -Texas Journal

This is a wide-ranging analysis of the relationship among industrialization, democracy, and art in the 20th century. U.S. and British scholars discuss the interaction of "high," "popular," and "mass" art, showing how Western culture as a whole is affected by the transition from the modern to the postmodern era.
