"There are few books that open new fields and set agendas for years after their publication. Even fewer have done so while being fun to read. Textual Poachers is such a book. Jenkins articulated the culture of participation that the internet has made common years before it took hold, and this work continues to shape how we understand these shifts." --Nancy Baym, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research New England

A Must read book if you are into pop culture studies
on 8 February 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: PaperbackVerified Purchase
This book is a must read for anyone interested in pop culture studies or anyone who is a fan and wants to understand the history of fan movements. The author does an excellent job of showing how different fandoms found empowerment in their communities and in their own fan creations based off the pop culture they liked. While this book was originally written in 1992, it's still relevant to contemporary pop culture studies and if anything provides a fascinating historical perspective that allows the reader to understand contemporary fan movements and use of technology better through the context of reading the book. What I liked the most is that the author explored a number of types of fandoms (SF but also romance) and fan activities such as slash, filking, and video making. By doing this he provides a holistic perspective on fan activities that can help the reader better understand fandom and how it shows up in culture.

Took a little bit of time to get here, but shipped quickly and came in wonderful condition. I couldn't ask for more with the price I bought it at. It's a book for college, but all the pages seem to be in crisp new order and the cover is seamless.
