5.0 out of 5 stars Difficult for my Tiny Brain but Great! 4 Mar 2013
By Mr B
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has some very high level reading on popular culture theories and it helped me when I related many of these theories to music culture as part of my degree course.
Some very good information although it was hard for me to digest, however thats probably just me!
Well worth it!
