Wright combines textual analysis and surveyMoreTribal Warfare thoroughly investigates a central element of the hit reality television show Survivor that the existing literature on reality television has overlooked: class politics.

Christopher J. Wright combines textual analysis and survey research to demonstrate that Survivor operates and resonates as a political allegory. Using the work of Fredric Jameson, this book reveals how Survivor frames its characters as haves and have-nots. For those new to Jameson, Wright breaks down the theorists complex notion of the political unconscious into easily understandable language. Furthermore, using the results of a survey of Survivor viewers, Tribal Warfare demonstrates that viewers divide along gender, racial, age, and most significantly class-related lines in their consumption of, and reaction to, the program.

The first book to explore the premise of Survivor as society, this unique work serves as both an engaging analysis of a popular television program and a highly readable primer for those new to critical theory.
