Great Transformations

Chapter 7 talks about Great Transformations in early Mass Media, but one of biggest transformations were the "growth of markets all attempting to control the unsettling effects of economic upheaval." Also during the nineteenth immigration came big into play where they formed great cultural life in southern and eastern Europe. African Americans were also migrating to the northern area and mid western cities which brought about urban culture "affecting all industrial societies". After the war, the establishment of the mass media as central social institutions in both Europe and North America". What shook the ninetieth century besides theater, music, newspaper, communications it "was a growing public precupation with obscenity or as we now call it pornography". As of today in the twenty 1st century i think porn is one biggest attraction in media because like they say sex sells.
