Secret Agent


  • Arthur Asa Berger

    1. Arthur Asa Berger is Professor of Social Science at the California State University, San Francisco, and author and illustrator of books on popular culture. “The archetypal critical review of my stuff,” he writes, “goes as follows: ‘While the subject is an interesting one, Berger is over his head in this book…, The perceptions, when not stolen from others, are thin and watery…, With the current paper shortage, should this kind of person be encouraged? Etc’” For a test of this observation, see the review of his Pop Culture in the last (Winter 1974) issue, or the review of his Comic Stripped American in the next (Summer 1974) issue of the Journal.
