Gerbner clearly and comprehensively outlines the way in which the universal story-telling function of human societies has been colonized by corporate media.

Drawing upon the path-breaking research of the Cultural Indicators Project, Gerbner outlines, in a comprehensive and clear fashion, the way in which the universal storytelling function of human societies has been colonized by corporate media in the modern world. Making a distinction between "effect" and his own theory of "cultivation," he explains the role the media environment plays in how we think about ourselves and the way the world works.

Through a concrete focus on the stories of gender, class, and race, Gerbner provides us with an analytical framework to understand what is at stake in the debates about the media.

SECTIONS: Storytelling & Humanity / Effect vs. Cultivation /An Example: Violence and the media / Casting & Fate / Stories of Gender / Stories of Class / Stories of Race / The Politics of Storytelling
