Popular Culture


Continuities in Popular Culture
The Present in the Past and the Past in the Present and Future
Edited by Ray B. Browne and Ronald J. Ambrosetti

Popular Press

The humanities are the strongest dynamic that runs from the past into the future. Throughout history, except for the past one hundred fifty years, the strongest element in the humanities has been the culture of the folk. Now it is the everyday culture of a democratic society—popular culture, a key to people's understanding themselves and their society. These sixteen essays by leading popular culture scholars demonstrate how elements in our everyday life flourished in the past, came to flower today, and will continue to shape us in the future.
