These revised editions of four classic texts each include a new introduction by Henry Jenkins, explaining ‘Why Fiske Still Matters’ for today’s students, followed by a discussion chapter between former Fiske students. This new material underlines the continuing relevance of these foundational texts in the study of communication, contemporary media and popular culture.

The John Fiske Collection includes re-issues of the following four classic texts:

  • Introduction to Communication Studies
  • Television Culture
  • Reading the Popular
  • Understanding Popular Culture

This collection will be highly useful to undergraduate and postgraduate students on all communication, media and cultural studies courses.

"Fiske’s analyses skilfully trace the insertion of conflicting social, economic, cultural and political ideologies within the television text." Darrell Y. Hamamoto, Film Quarterly

"Shows a welcome ability to provide lucid and balanced summaries of a complex and diverse field." British Book News
