1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this book
The book is poor. Hesmondalgh doesn't understand Adorno's work - where the culture industry comes from. Consequently, his criticism originates from a place of ignorance. There is also a 3rd edition out now, so don't get ripped off by someone claiming to have a 'new' copy, and then getting a tattered old book for 20!

If you want to learn about media, great...

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book For This Subject, 26 Mar 2003
By A Customer
I really found this book extremly useful in helping explain the cultural indurtries. For the course I'm doing at University, this book helped me through it and came in so useful. I would reccommend that anyone doing cultural studies (especially at QMUC) buy this book.
