Abstract
“[…] Janet Staiger offers an evaluation of the work of the celebrated American media theorist Fredric Wertham as applied to two very different social problems of his time (comic books and racial segregation) that reflects on the conundrum of how scholars might reconcile ‘bad’ theory with positive social effects.” (Siân Nicholas and Tom O’Malley: Introduction, p. 6)
