This is a must for any cultural or media studies student. I used it for 2 out of the 3 years during my English/Cultural Studies Degree and it assisted me in all the subject areas. The articles are organised for easy reference and cover almost all of the key writers studied. Excellent for covering the key reading you do each week but also a superb start and reference for any essay or dissertation. ( )

During ( Foucault and Literature , Routledge, 1992) highlights major issues, trends, and hypotheses critical to scholars of contemporary culture since the 1950s, when cultural studies emerged as an academic discipline. The 27 essays by Theodor Adorno, Roland Barthes, Teresa de Lauretis, Michel Foucault, Michele Wallace, and Cornel West, among others, range from ethnicity, multiculturalism, and sexuality to theory and method. Comments and suggested readings accompany each essay, and a valuable introduction places the intellectual and political forces that have shaped cultural studies in their historical context. This volume will appeal to advanced students and scholars; recommended for libraries with in-depth collections in cultural studies and sociology.

The first edition of The Cultural Studies Reader established itself as the leader in the field, providing the ideal introduction to this exciting and influential discipline. This expanded second edition offers a wider selection of essays covering every major cultural studies method and theory, and takes account of recent changes in the field. There are added articles on new areas such as technology and science, globalization, postcolonialism and cultural policy, making The Cultural Studies Reader essential reading for anyone wanting to know how cultural studies developed, where it is now, and its future directions.
