Popular Culture: A Reader
helps students understand the pervasive role of popular culture and the processes that constitute it as a product of industry, an intellectual object of inquiry and an integral component of all our lives.

The volume is divided into 7 thematic sections, and each section is preceded by an introduction which engages with, and critiques, the chapters that follow. The book contains:
  • Classic writings from all the 'big names' including Raymond Williams, Stuart Hall, Walter Benjamin, Theodor Adorno, Frederic Jameson, Dick Hebdige, Angela McRobbie, Paul Gilroy and many more.
  • Contemporary cultural references throughout - this is not simply an historical account.
  • Pieces drawing on diverse national, disciplinary and subdisciplinary contexts.
  • Sensitivity to issues of gender, race and sexuality.
This reader is a key resource for students of media and communication studies, cultural studies, and the sociology of the media.
