This book provides academic reformers with a blueprint for tackling the upheaval facing media education. It calls for a new professionalism that rejects the status quo, reflects the mission and diversity of individual programs, and demands a redefinition of both traditional media studies and the liberal arts.

The book directs philosophical assaults and uses real-life examples to challenge the paralyzing effects of the "seven deadly sins" of media education.
