Dirty Jews and the Christian Right: Larry David and FCC v. Fox
This concluding chapter summarizes the book's main arguments and presents some final thoughts. It argues that scholars of American literary modernism and postmodernism can benefit from attending more thoughtfully to Jewishness, and that scholars of Jewish literature can benefit from greater attention to American culture—even when its products seem most ephemeral or trivial. It also discusses recent efforts to suppress and criminalize explicit sexual representation and taboo language in media and in public schools; and the contemporary Christian Right's relationship with American Jews. It concludes that although it is impossible to predict how future debates about obscenity in the United States might involve American Jews, the story of American obscenity and the story of American Jews remains unfinished and will continue to develop.
