This book complements and expands on the commentary and conclusions of the author's initial inquiry into the modern era of media-made culture in "The Visual Focus of American Media Culture in the Twentieth Century (FDUP, 2004)". From the 1890s on to the 1920s and the Depression and World War II years, society's pervasively communal focus demanded idealized images and romanticized interpretations of life. But the communal imperative, as it was impacted on by evolving social change, harbored the seeds of its own disintegration. The sociocultural uprooting of another world war, the anxieties attendant to the Atomic Age, and two later sociopolitically divisive military conflicts culminated in the societal upheavals of the 1960s and an increasingly problematic and socially fragmented nation. As "Visual Focus" did, this second book also relies on the visual metaphor of the mediated vision to show how the visually oriented communication forms of the media culture have influenced and contributed to the origin of varied subcultural sectors in the postmodern era, extending from the appearance of television in the late 1940s to the advent of the Internet near the end of the twentieth century. Until his retirement, Wiley Lee Umphlett served as an administrator/professor at the University of West Florida.
