TOP 500 REVIEWERon 4 July 2012
This 6th edition(2012) has been extensively revised, rewritten and updated with new sections on the English Marxism of William Morris, Post-Feminism & Whiteness.
The book covers a wide range of cultural theories with chapters on 'What is popular culture'; 'The 'culture and civilisation' tradition'; 'Culturalism'; 'Marxisms'; 'Psychoanalysis'; 'Structuralism and post-structuralism'; 'Gender and sexuality'; ''Race', racism and representation'; 'Post modernism' & 'The politics of the popular'.
'Cultural Theory and Popular Culture', with a Companion Website, is an intellectually stimulating book which explains complex ideas in a remarkably lucid and engaging way. It is highly recommended to students of cultural studies and also the general reader who wishes to gain an understanding of an often difficult subject.

Oh Gawd... I have to read this for uni...

It is so dry and boring. I feel sorry for anyone who has such an analytical world view. Yes. some of it makes sense but thinking too deeply into the accepted standards of life and culture will only make you depressed and cynical.
Only bought it as I mentioned for uni and it is the set text :(
There's a million other better things you could do with £20... like lose it down the drain...
