    One thought on “Policing Desire: Pornography, AIDS and the Media

    1. Colin on said:

      This book is a fantastic analysis of the discourse of HIV and AIDS and the mass media's irresponsible control of it. Though it was written in the late 80's during the AIDS epidemic, it accurately describes how mass media continues to treat controversial subjects today.

    2. Christopher on said:

      Primarily representation based and argues for the unleashing of radical queer desire as a political project against AIDS. Useful? Yes. For those rigorous dialectic critiques of identity politics and its adherents.

    3. Meghan Cornely on said:

      Oh Mass Media Ethics, how I loved thee. No, really, between my Comm major and (yet unbeknownst to me)my Philo minor, this book was the best of my worlds junior year.
