This is a wonderful book. Storey starts with the difference between culture (Beethoven) and popular culture (Beatles) and develops a fascinating story of different kinds of perspectives that put all sorts of interesting perspectives on popular culture. My personal favourite chapters of the book were those dealing with Marxism and post-Marxism of different kinds. It is a book that is hard to put away. Interesting, fascinating and enjoyable from beginning to end.
