Co-opting Culture: Culture and Power in Sociology and Cultural Studies represents a collection of new scholarship on culture from the social sciences and from work done under the rubric of "cultural studies". Working from the idea that Sociology and Cultural Studies have developed distinct and valuable toolkits for understanding culture, the editors have brought together a collection of essays that address the ways in which the cultures around race, sex, and gender are mediated through or intersect with politics, society, and economy. Some essays deal directly with the theoretical nature of this mediation, while others adopt these theoretical approaches to investigate specific cultural objects or communities. In doing so, these essays call attention to the particularities of form that constitute a kind of cultural logic around the objects under consideration.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is a rich and thick version of a 'new wave' in Sociology. In short, these sharp, very informed diagnoses of the parochial, reveal deep philosophical themes, rendered throughout with critical worry. Keep your eye on Harden, Carley, and their contributing colleaguessss -- John J. McDermott, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Humanities, Texas A&M University
A unique, cross-disciplinary exploration of social institutions on the postmodern landscape. This book will unsettle those who cling to the integrity of the modern subject and find comfort in its time-honored institutions. -- Kristi M. Wilson, Soka University of America
The best feature of this book is its depth in terms of an examination, via various voices and texts, of the constructs of culture and power in a very contemporary schematic sense. The arguments range from real subtlety to a more strident tone, but all have much to offer in terms of new knowledge and thinking on these issues. They will, undoubtedly, stimulate and incite various readers to question and evaluate these and other texts in very productive ways. -- Ellen L. Gorman, Georgetown University
