The American Soapbox is a humorous commentary on American society and culture. The first non-fiction work by horror/suspense novelist Billie Dean Shoemate III, this is a no-holds-barred, all-gloves-off take on American life. Brutally honest, hilariously open and even touching at times, The American Soapbox is not a book for the narrow-minded. This isn't literature. This isn't art. This is personal.
SOAP, SEX AND CIGARETTES examines how American advertising both mirrors society and creates it. From the first newspaper advertisement in colonial times to today's online viral advertising, the text explores how advertising grew in America, how products and brands were produced and promoted, and how advertisements and agencies reflect and introduce cultural trends and issues. The threads of art, industry, culture, and technology unify the work. The text is chronological in its organization and is lavishly illustrated with advertisements.
