comment:
"The main question this book tries to answer is, what is the novela influence on the working class? Is the novela a product of the TV industry resulting in alienation as traditional left wing and intellectual thinking supposes? This book shows that this kind of theory is a prejudice and in itself part of the symbolic struggle going on in societies. The telenovelas can help to show that social relations between classes, and even more between the sexes, could be different. They offer working class men and women class and gender images which can contribute towards a break whith that which is taken for granted." (back cover)
