Book Description

Britain is no longer the sole organizing centre for cultural studies. The contributors to this volume demonstrate how cultural studies has diffused into other English-speaking countries and how its original concerns have been renegotiated and changed. The result is a landmark book which provides students with an unrivalled guide to the international phenomenon of cultural studies.
