An examination of the role of telenovelas-a Latin American sister to the Western soap opera-this book looks at their impact on the everyday lives of Latin American audiences. It seeks to explain telenovelas' cultural and commercial success; the meanings, identities, and social actions articulated through watching telenovelas; and how audiences-often first- or second-generation migrants in the huge cities of Latin America-use telenovelas in coping with urban life and modernity.
