Bringing together a range of core texts into one volume, this acclaimed anthology offers the definitive resource in culture, media, and communication.
A fully revised new edition of the bestselling anthology in this dynamic and multidisciplinary field
New contributions include essays from Althusser through to Henry Jenkins, and a completely new section on Globalization and Social Movements
Retains important emphasis on the giant thinkers and “makers” of the field: Gramsci on hegemony; Althusser on ideology; Horkheimer and Adorno on the culture industry; Raymond Williams on Marxist cultural theory; Habermas on the public sphere; McLuhan on media; Chomsky on propaganda; hooks and Mulvey on the subjects of visual pleasure and oppositional gazes
Features a substantial critical introduction, short section introductions and full bibliographic citations
“This updated and expanded edition provides a useful interpretive framework and remains an indispensable one-volume resource for understanding the intellectual range of cultural studies and its function in explanations of ordinary practice.” Hanno Hardt, University of Ljubljana
“Durham and Kellner bring together an intellectually invigorating assortment of material, framed by a lucid and exceedingly useful opening essay which shows how the work collected in this volume can serve the goal of cultural criticism and interpretation.” Theodore L. Glasser, Stanford University
"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 (of the first edition)
"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 (of the first edition)
