What People are Saying About This
Patricia Leavy casts a critical eye on how mass-mediated iconography contributes to the contested construction of collective historical memory. By examining competing "communities of memory" at the social intersections of power, resistance, and the marketplace,Iconic Events makes important contributions to the sociology of popular culture, and to what nations remember about themselves and what they forget.
