Beyond a joke : the limits of humour

edited by Sharon Lockyer and Michael Pickering

Humor in contemporary culture is generally celebrated as a public good, yet at times is felt to produce misunderstanding and even hatred. Now available in paperback, this collection explores the ethics and aesthetics of humor, in everyday life and in media comedy. An updated introduction looks at the implications of the Brand/Ross controversy.
