Dirty Marks : The Forbidden Discourse
What does society forbid, and why? And how does the forbidden relate to power and social control in society? John Schostak looks at family life, education, popular culture, information media, and the press. He shows how society maps out forbidden courses and "proper" courses for men and women to follow. Then he demonstrates that the forbidden, though often desired, is relied upon to keep people in their place - within the bounds of the familiar. He asserts that this needs to be challenged - through the media, through schooling and through the family - if we are to consider ours a free society.
