The dictionary of Cultural Studies
on 9 March 2009
this book is excellent for anyone interested in culture, philosophy, art, subcultures, politics and history. It is a funky little encyclopedia of many key terms used in all these disciplines, very good for quick references and makes good reading as a straight book too. Keywords is current, extremely interesting, highly informative and very accessible. I had a copy in 1990 and it was a good companion to the cultural studies course at the time, I sold my copy when the course ended and regretted doing that as I actually missed the book (sad). I've since bought it again. So if like me you get turned on by words such as Hegemony, Existentialism, Idealism and any other Ism you will be pleased with this book.
