Informed, controversial, ranging from a melancholy study of rock and roll's descent into show business to a hilarious look at the spectacle that is the Jerry Lewis Telethon, these twenty essays offer an unusual and (ironically) entertaining study of American media by one of its foremost critics.

Review:

"These essays are the most valuable, original, powerful (and funny) any critic has produced in the history of American television. Boxed In is the benchmark work." --Todd Gitlin
"Mark Miller is at his best (and this best is very good indeed) when he shows . . . how television obliterates distinctions, trivializes issues, and reduces everything to insignificance. His analysis of the flattening, reductive effect of television is original and highly instructive." --Christopher Lasch, author of The Culture of Narcissism
