ABOUT THE BOOK:
Foreward by Brian Cogan, Ph.D., who also edited this collection of essays. Deconstructing South Park: Critical Examinations of Animated Transgression looks at the long and controversial run of one of the most subversive programs on television. South Park, while denounced by many as simply scatological, is actually one of the most nuanced and thoughtful programs on television.
Deconstructing South Park shows how South Park is not only entertainment, but a commentary on American culture that tackles controversial issues far beyond the depth of most television, specifically, the medium of animated sitcom allows the show's creators to contribute to cultural conversations regarding disability studies, religion, sexuality, celebrity, and more.
