"The first volume was hailed as a cornerstone volume in fascilitating research.' This revision, appearing all at one time, deserves that designation even more. . . . essential for large public and academic libraries." Reference Books Bulletin "Eight new articles describing business, catalogs, computers, dance, fashion, gardening, graffiti, and musical theater. Several other chapters are essentially new since they have new authors. There is a superb article on pornography from Joseph Slade, an expanded article on magic from Steve Tigner, and a new article on science from Elizabeth Keeney. Richard Nelson's article on propaganda, the longest in the first edition, is now greatly expanded and provides one of the most detailed treatments of the subject anywhere." Library Journal "This essential tool for the study of American popular culture serves as introductory textbook; bibliographic guide; bibliography; and, through its index, an informal survey of that discipline's concerns." Wilson Library Bulletin
