9780137761210: Cultural Theory and Popular Culture: A Reader

This second edition of John Storey's successful reader in Cultural Theory and Popular Culture contains nine new readings, and revised and rewritten introductions for each of the seven sections. As before, the book brings together work by critics and theorists to introduce the theoretical, analytical and historical study of popular culture within cultural studies. The first six sections contain readings which cover culture and civilisation tradition; culturalism; structuralism and post-structuralism; Marxism; feminism and postmodernism, and the final section explores the debates surrounding popular culture. Six of the previous readings have been replaced by nine new articles to extend the concept of the book and its critical value. This invaluable reader can be used to accompany An Introduction to Cultural Theory and Popular Culture, thus providing a complete study of popular culture across the field of cultural history.
