In this second edition of his successful introduction to Cultural Theory and Popular Culture, John Storey has revised the text throughout. As before, the book presents a clear and critical survey of the competing theories of and various approaches to popular culture. In addition to the standard themes of the earlier versions; 'culture and civilisation' tradition, the American 'mass culture' debate; structuralism and post-structuralism through to postmodernism, there is now a completely new chapter on 'Consuming Popular Culture'. This chapter examines theories of cultural consumption and looks closely at such developments as fan culture and shopping as popular culture. Retaining the practical approach of the first edition, and using up-to-date examples from popular cultural texts, this new edition is bound to remain a favourite with students and lecturers alike.
