Product Overview

What has the death Corporal Patrick D. Tillman of the US Army Rangers in an incident of lsquo; friendly firersquo; in Afghanistan in 2004 got to do with culture? How has the study of ideology, coding, theming and representation by Cultural Studies helped us to understand Reality TV, the Internet, Mobile Phones, the iPod and leading brands in lsquo; neat capitalismrsquo; like Virgin, The Body Shop and Apple? This lively and assured book provides a concise and authoritative critical guide to Cultural Studies. It demonstrates that the field has moved through four lsquo; moments': the lsquo; National/Popular', the lsquo; Textual/Representational', lsquo; Global/Post Essentialismrsquo; and lsquo; Governmentality/Policyrsquo; . It illustrates the meaning of each of these moments by a discussion of representative texts and concrete examples from popular culture. As such, it achieves a novel and accessible account of the origins and development of the field. The book also shows how the readerrsquo; s personal experience can be systematically situated in cultural forces and used as a resource to clarify how culture works, through the analysis of on-location practice, embodiment, emplacement and context. Packed with illuminating examples, and a clear and compelling prose style, the book is the antidote to abstract, hazy accounts of the meaning and value of Cultural Studies. It is the ideal text for readers new to the field, but it will also be appreciated by established practitioners as lsquo; good to think with'.
