Manufacturing Visions of Society and History in Textbooks.
Perlmutter, David D.
Journal of Communication, v47 n3 p68-81 Sum 1997
Finds that the secondary-school textbook vision of society is homogenized and sanitized to reduce the risk of controversy. Reveals three domains of control that influence textbook visual content: industrial (how the image world of a textbook is created); commercial (marketing pressures); and social (interest groups that influence the visual components of the textbook).
