Ironically, the book critically analyzes how the American media handled the shooting at Virginia Tech, yet the cover of the book equally symbolizes the dramatic conceptualization of the event as a Massacre. I strongly suggest one does not read this book if they experienced the shooting at Virginia Tech. However, if one intends to conduct a sociological analysis by essentially ridiculing the administrations' response to the event and how the "Hokie Nation" reacted, it may fit your prerogative. If you are familiar with, and enjoyed, Ben Agger's "Public Sociology" and concepualization as his duty as a sociologist to critically engage in political discourse in the public sphere and elevate his own political radicalism, than you may equally enjoy this text.Was this review helpful?
