Pressestimmen"People interested in political theory, political culture, mass media, and civil liberties will find this a most interesting and provocative volume. Informed by a diversity of theoretical frames, Public Affairs also offers several unifying themes, including the difficulty of drawing bright-line boundaries between the 'public' and 'private' realms."--Norman L. Rosenberg, author of Protecting the Best Men: An Interpretive History of the Law of Libel "Public Affairs is a lively, timely exploration of sex scandals and their significance to a democratic public. A provocative joining of cultural studies to political science, this collection is especially important to feminist scholars for its examination of the ways that scandals redefine the public/private distinction. It will also challenge scholars of democracy for its stimulating treatment of scandal and citizen agency."--Lisa Disch, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
