Summary

This innovative textbook investigates how society shapes our many forms of entertainment and in turn, how entertainment shapes society. Entertainment & Society examines a broad range of entertainment formats'‚ÄĚcovering new areas like sports, video games, gambling, theme parks, travel, and shopping, as well as traditional entertainment media such as film, television, and print. The authors begin with a general overview of the study of entertainment, introducing readers to various ways of understanding leisure and play, and then go on to trace a brief history of the development of entertainment from its live forms through mediated technology. The new edition features new examples and pedagogical features throughout including text boxes, case studies, student activities, questions for discussion, and suggestions for further reading.
