This broad-ranging survey of social and cultural theory issues an audacious challenge to contemporary cultural studies′ emphasis on speculation, rather than observation. Toby Miller and Alec McHoul invite the reader to question their participation in both dominant and subcultural practices by providing perspectives on the everyday through ethnography, textual reading, discourse analysis and political economy.

Following a summary of key ideas on an everyday practice, such as `eating′ or `talking′, each chapter considers the discourses that construct these practices, and concludes with one or more empirical investigations, opening up the possibility of a significant departure in cultural studies.

Review:

Taking on such topics as sport, therapy, food, and conversation, McHoul and Miller perform the impressive feat of rethinking the study of popular culture whilst also explaining difficult theoretical concepts. This is a clever book which will give students important new tools for understanding the meaning of the everyday in their lives' -

Marita Sturken, University of Southern California
