"At the turn of the nineteenth century, American capitalism was in crisis, producing too many goods for too few buyers. That crisis was ultimately resolved in a novel, historically decisive manner by creating whole new categories of consumer goods and appealing to new groups of people which might purchase them. What we now recognize as consumer society originated in this period, and it was mass culture, the first "culture industry," that helped to bring it into being." "In a magisterial study of this process, Richard Ohmann surveys the new practices of advertising, mass distribution of goods, and, most important, the birth of the inexpensive mass-audience magazine to analyse the creation of the American professional-managerial class. Drawing upon work in economic, cultural, and social history, he integrates the seemingly disparate phenomena of modern middle-class life in a coherent tale of how this class was formed and came to occupy the foreground in that malign ideological formation "the American Dream.""--Jacket

Ideas for English 101 : teaching writing in college by Richard, Ed Ohmann( Book )

5 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The articles in this book are concerned with teaching composition in freshman English courses. They were first published in "College English" during the years from 1966 to 1975. These selections represent both the theoretical discussions and the technical plans which were put forth in a period when freshman English was being dropped as a required course in many colleges. The contents are divided into the following two sections: "What Should Freshman English Be? Methods and Controversies" and "Tactics." Among the essays included are "Toward Competence and Creativity in the Open Class" by Lou Kelly, "The Teaching of Writing as Writing" by W.E. Coles, Jr., "Hydrants Into Elephants: The Theory and Practice of College Composition" by George Stade, "Behavioral Objectives for English" by Robert Zoellner, "'Topics' and Levels in the Composing Process" by W. Ross Winterowd, "Using Painting, Photography and Film to Teach Narration" by Joseph Comprone, "Teaching Freshman Comp to New York Cops" by David Siff, "Cassettes in the Classroom" by Enno Klammer, and "What Students Can Do to Take the Burden Off You" by Francine Hardaway.

Making & selling culture( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To what extent do moviemakers, television and radio producers, advertising executives, and marketers merely reflect trends, beliefs, and desires that already exist in our culture, and to what extent do they consciously shape our culture to their own ends? In-depth interviews with ten executives from the "culture industry" and five scholarly analyses examine that question, and address the issues of power and authority, meaning and identity, that arise when cultural producers define and react to audiences. These reflections by key players provide an unprecedented view, as editor Richard Ohmann writes, "into the ways cultural producers imagine or know markets and how such knowledge figures in their decisions about what events, experiences, and products to make."
