The ethnographic tone of this early cultural studies text records many aspects of working class life in Hunslet Leeds during the mid twentieth century. It is an easy read and a useful text to be familiar with for those interested in cultural studies but it does need to be read in tandem with other accounts from the same era if some of its gaps are to be revealed.

If you don't have this in your collection of non-fiction, then your brain should call your local human rights organisation.

Is Richard Hoggart from Mars? Or did he only think his fellow Yorkshiremen were? And what of his audience? What were they supposed to make of this (on popular magazines)? '[T]he serials.. must be 'dramatic' and mount their accumulated series of suspended shocks as week follows week' (ah! NOW I get it) or, even better, 'for married women there are washing-powder advertisements' - where should one start? It's the thought of the sheltered, po-faced Hoggart furtively perusing this stuff, purportedly for research, that most bemuses - that and the legions of Hoggartians who have hoovered this stuff up. A jarring, joyless experience, mainly, for what aspires to be both celebration and semi-requiem
