"After Raymond Williams" applies the Welsh academic writer and novelist Raymond Williams' theory of cultural materialism to a series of readings of literature and film produced in the years since Williams' death in 1988. Williams argued that literary texts do not only reflect what is happening in a society; they also cause changes to occur.

Review:

Williams could not have a better advocate than Dix, whose careful reading of his work restores one of the most profound thinkers on literature and culture to our view. --Gary Day, TLS, Jan 09

Thoroughly researched, politically engaged, lucidly written and often very cleverly argued, the book is an immediately essential addition to the extensive secondary literature on Williams. --Andrew Milner, New Welsh Review, No. 84
