Reviews

-With this volume, Lasky completes his singular, extended pursuit of the media's depiction of the unmentionable, frightening, offensive, disruptive, amoral, abnormal, vulgar, obscene, and profane (vols. 1-2, CH, Mar'01, 38-3721; Oct'05, 43-0753)... Lasky is unique among critics of contemporary journalism; his perspective may be most akin to that of H.L. Mencken or Edmund Wilson. This three-volume set is a valuable resource for journalism and literary criticism. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals.- --R. A.
