Books By Author Misha Kavka
Reality TV, Paperback (February 2012)
This book is a study of the 'Reality TV' format which, in less than a decade, has transformed network programming schedules, branded satellite and digital stations, become a favourite target for anti-television campaigners, and turned viewers into savvy readers of (and participants in) the mechanics of television production.
Feminist Consequences, Paperback (January 2001)» View all books by Misha Kavka
Exploring the status of feminism in this "postfeminist" age, this work on feminist thinking aims to move away from the all too common dependence on French theorists and male thinkers and instead builds on feminist theory written by women. These writings address the question "Where are we going?" as well as "Where have we come from?"
