Sobre o livro
We live in a golden age of fictional television, while our politics has never been so controversial. This book explores that relationship, asking what it is that some of Americas most popular TV shows have to say about its politics.
Perhaps, like the author, you have gasped at Game of Thrones and balked at Breaking Bad. This book illustrates how, far from being outside of politics, shows such as these are deeply political, helping to fill our world with meaning. To this end, the book analysesGame of Thrones, House of Cards, The West Wing, Homeland, 24, Veep, The Wire, The Walking Deadand Breaking Bad. These are all politically consequential shows that shape how we feel and think about world politics.
