After the Great Divide: Modernism, Mass Culture, Postmodernism (Theories of Representation and Difference) (1986) by Andreas Huyssen [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]

"Pop in the broadest sense was the context in which a notion of the postmodern first took shape, and from the beginning until today, the most significant trends within postmodernism have challenged modernism's relentless hostility to mass culture." -- Andreas Huyssen

"all culture is standardized, organized and administered for the sole purpose of serving as an instrument of social control" (Huyssen 21).
