MEDIA REVIEWS
Chris Barker is a trustworthy field guide for those new to cultural studies. His book is a treasure trove of techniques and productive questions; it is an encyclopaedia of the terms, concepts and authors at the centre of cultural studies. It is a work of reference and a practical tool-kit - jump in and set it to work
Ben Highmore
Reader in Media Studies, University of Sussex

This new edition of Cultural Studies offers a timely engagement with important ideas, questions and debates in this fast-developing field. Remarkable in the breadth of its coverage, it is written with passion and insight. It will be warmly welcomed by students interested in how theory can help us to think through the complexities of real-world issues
Stuart Allan
Professor of Journalism, Bournemouth University

Chris Barker's Cultural Studies: Theory and Practice has been for many years one of the best guides to and overviews of a broad range of the issues and theories that constitute cultural studies. In addition, Barker provides his own conception, with a wink toward Wittgenstein, of cultural studies as a 'language game.' For those who want to be prepped to play the game of cultural studies, this is the book to read
