Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A brilliant selection of classic and contemporary readings by two very acute scholars, who also share a deep commitment to the classroom. Their introductions to each section are short, sharp, and to the point. This book is the basis for a terrific course." John Downing, University of Texas at Austin

"These selections confirm the historical grounding of cultural studies in critical social thought and reinforce the transdisciplinary nature of the field. The result is an intellectually stimulating compilation of basic texts for readers in search of theoretical markers in the literature of critical communication studies." Hanno Hardt, University of Iowa/University of Ljubljana

"Selections cover a spectrum of approaches to cultural studies . . . thematic divisions are preceded by introductions and include articles reflecting a breadth of historical context and movement. Suitable for most university courses in cultural studies." Reference and Research Book News

"This work will prove very useful for academic courses in media and cultural studies. It contains a range of extracts and essays which are - genuinely - key works in these fields. The book will find its easy way on to shelves in academic and college libraries around the world, and those of any serious student or teacher covering this ground. The editors have done a very competent job, and come with no little personal recommendation. A very useful and reasonably priced way of accessing a wide range of texts without which, arguably, media and cultural studies could not properly work." Reference Reviews
