Perverse Desire and the Ambiguous Icon (November 1994)
Allen S. Weiss - Author

"Here is an extremely intelligent, well-informed, authoritative account of some of the most exciting and novel aspects of contemporary thought and contemporary aesthetics. This is really solid, exciting work. It will be a major text in the field of contemporary aesthetics and postmodernist debate.

Essays and Interviews
Wheeler Winston Dixon - Editor

"Rarely have I read an anthology in which all of the essays are so uniformly excellent, especially so consistently well written. Indeed, many of the essays read as if they spring from the same voice--an important part of the pleasure of this work.

A Poetics of Obscenity
Peter Michelson - Author

It is well argued and well researched, avoiding both the polemical excesses and the technical jargon that mar so much current di...(Read More)
Seeing Films Politically
Seeing Films Politically (March 1991)
Mas'ud Zavarzadeh - Author

"In a big league along with Brecht and Barthes." -- Ernest Callenbach, Editor, Film Quarterly

In this bold political rethinking of contemporary film theory, Zavarzadeh overturns the dominant concepts that fetishize film as a work of art or simple entertainment. He demonstrates how aesthetic notions obscure the ideological effects produced by viewing films, particularly the production of the spectator as the subject of social class. S...(Read More)
