Publisher's Synopsis

Mothers on American television takes an in-depth look at how motherhood is represented on some of the most popular television series produced this century. Adopting a feminist, Marxist, cultural studies and psychoanalytical approach, the book offers a history of the positioning of mothers within American society. It provides detailed analysis of The Sopranos, Sex and the City, The Handmaid's Tale and more, while reflecting on the newspaper 'mommy wars', employment patterns and alternative views of motherhood.
