From the Back Cover:

Cultural Theory: An Anthology presents a comprehensive collection of the essential readings that have shaped and defined the field of contemporary cultural theory. The editors have selected readings from key theorists and authors, including Judith Butler, Frantz Fanon, Michel Foucault and Fredric Jameson, whose ideas remain most relevant to the analysis and study of culture today. The concepts discussed cross several disciplines, with sections covering subjects such as power, ideology, the organization of space and time, and the production of subjectivity. The readings presented in this carefully chosen compilation reflect the most influential ideas that have emerged in each of these areas -- ideas that have been put to use in myriad ways in the study and critical assessment of modern culture.

Brief introductions to each thematically-linked section summarize the readings and their context, making the anthology accessible to the student reader as well as to faculty and researchers.
