MEDIA REVIEWS

'The Great American Makeover historicizes the makeover mania that has taken over contemporary television and shows how the recurring promise of personal transformation that unites makeovers past and present intersects with art, consumer culture, citizenship, gender and race. An important and timely contribution to critical studies of popular culture.' - Laurie Ouellette, Associate Professor, University of Minnesota; Co-editor of Reality TV: Remaking Television Culture
