New American Teenagers is an invigorating read that will please media scholars and youth scholars alike. Barbara Brickman actively and purposefully rescues for us the teen films and teen viewers of the 1970s, exploring this era of cinema through a blend of intriguing psychoanalytical, feminist, and queer film theories in a manner that provokes reconsideration of key texts. -- Sharon Marie Ross, co-editor of Teen Television: Essays on Programming and Fandom
Through a series of thorough and sometimes humorous analyses of teen film trends in the '70s, Brickman highlights the contributions of the genre to broader developments such as feminism, gay rights, educational reform, and the political power of youth. -- Timothy Shary, author of Generation Multiplex: The Image of Youth in Contemporary American Cinema
Brickman extends the knowledge of teen films while focusing on alternative depictions of teenagers and teen films, such as the "queer kid", dangerous or independent females and insular peer culture that can be unsafe and violent, while focusing less on parental influences. -- Metapsychology Online Reviews, Hennie Weiss
