Review

‘The seventh edition of Cultural Theory and Popular Culture: An Introduction gives an excellent overview of the historical roots of cultural studies and brilliantly links it to contemporary perspectives and new research (e.g. the materiality of popular culture). A key textbook for students and everyone interested in the study of popular culture.’

Sofie Van Bauwel, Associate Professor of Communication Studies, Ghent University, Belgium

‘Since its first appearance Storey’s Cultural Theory and Popular Culture has been, and continues to be, the benchmark against which all introductions to cultural studies and popular culture tend to be measured. The reasons are manifold. It is written in an engaging and exemplary style which, while not oversimplifying the issues, is easy to understand and has many highly illuminating examples. The book’s continued relevance (reflected by the fact that it has been translated into many languages) has been maintained because it has been constantly updated with new sections to keep pace with what is happening in the area and it’s pedagogical features (the accompanying Reader, dedicated webpage resources, practice questions and glossary of key terms) make it essential reading on any course dedicated to cultural studies.’

David Walton, Senior Lecturer in Cultural Studies and President of the Iberian Association of Cultural Studies, University of Murcia, Spain
