Age of Oprah (Media and Power) by Janice Peck

Over the last two decades Oprah Winfreys journey has taken her from talk show queen to - as Time Magazine has asserted - one of the most important figures in popular culture. Through her talk show, magazine, website, seminars, charity work, and public appearances, her influence in the social, economic, and political arenas of American life is considerable and until now, largely unexamined.. In The Age of Oprah, media scholar and journalist Janice Peck traces Winfreys growing cultural impact and illustrates the fascinating parallels between her road to fame and fortune and the political-economic rise of neoliberalism in this country. While seeking to understand Oprahs ascent to near iconic status that she enjoys today, Pecks book provides a fascinating window into the intersection of American politics and culture over the past quarter century.
