As such, this book complements and expands on the commentary and conclusions of the author's initial inquiry into the modern era of media-made culture in The Visual Focus of American Media Culture in the Twentieth Century (FDUP, 2004)." "Like the first book, the second also relies on the collective metaphor of the mediated vision to show how the visually oriented communication forms of the media culture have influenced and contributed to the origin of varied subcultural sectors in the postmodern era, extending from the appearance of television in the late 1940s to the advent of the Internet near the end of the century."--Jacket." ;
