Cultural Theory and Popular Culture: An Introduction (Hardcover)
In this ninth edition of his award-winning introduction, John Storey presents a clear and critical survey of competing theories of, and various approaches to, popular culture. Its breadth and theoretical unity, exemplified through popular culture, means that it can be flexibly and relevantly applied across a number of disciplines.
Retaining the accessible approach of previous editions and using appropriate examples from the texts and practices of popular culture, this new edition remains a key introduction to the area.
New to this edition:
- updated throughout with contemporary examples of popular culture

- brand new discussions on Black Lives Matter and intersectionality
- updated student resources at www.routledge.com/cw/storey
This new edition remains essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of cultural studies, media studies, communication studies, the sociology of culture, popular culture and other related subjects.
