From the Publisher
"If you had to recommend a single work which applies cultural studies clearly, comprehensively, intelligently and generously to a major subject of inquiry, this would be it." Media Information Australia

"Fiske’s analyses skilfully trace the insertion of conflicting social, economic, cultural and political ideologies within the television text." Darrell Y. Hamamoto, Film Quarterly
