With this collection of research essays, Dr. Jinbong Choi illustrates the importance of a comparative approach to critical media studies. In several chapters, Dr. Choi successfully analyzes power relations that structure South Korean popular culture texts and practices such as home shopping channels. In others, he examines the role of U.S. and South Korean journalism in setting agendas, both those of the public and of news organizations particularly around the tropes of the so-called “war on terror” and the “axis of evil.” By casting these concepts in a critical light informed by cultural studies theory, Dr. Choi has illuminated relationships between news media, popular culture, and foreign policy connections that are all too often overlooked in news media scholarship. Dr. Jinbong Choi’s book offers a fresh and provocative model for understanding the fluidity and influence of media culture in a global context.
