9781405874090: Cultural Theory and Popular Culture

This extensively revised and updated 5th edition of Storey's market-leading textbook provides an engaging, clear and coherent introduction to cultural theory.  Popular culture is used to critically examine the theories and main approaches of cultural theory, and ensures that the accessible approach of previous editions is retained.  Content has been expanded and widely illustrated throughout, and relevant and appropriate examples from the field of popular culture help to exemplify how theory relates to practice. New chapters include coverage of topics such as race, racism and representation; the text is supported by the fully revised and improved companion website that encourages further independent study and  helps the student to grasp a broad and widely relevant understanding of cultural theory.

This new edition remains essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate
students of cultural studies, media studies, communication studies, the
sociology of culture, popular culture and other related subjects.
