"Will be a very useful tool for any student trying to make sense of the vast expanses of contemporary cultural theory and criticism. Well-written and admirably self-reflective, it combines rigorous explications and applications of many of the most influential concepts and theorists."
- Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina

"Accessible and insightful throughout; offering help to both experienced and inexperienced students of cultural theory. Highly recommended."
- John Storey, University of Sunderland

Doing Cultural Theory
teaches more than just the basics of cultural theory. It unpacks its complexities with real-life examples, and shows readers how to link theory and practice. This book: Offers accessible introductions to how cultural studies has engaged with key theories in structuralism, poststructuralism and postmodernismTeaches straightforward ways of practising these theories so students learn to think for themselvesUses 'practice' boxes to show students how to apply cultural theory in the real worldGuides students through the literature with carefully selected further reading recommendation.

Other textbooks only show how others have analyzed and interpreted the world. Doing Cultural Theory takes it a step further and teaches students step-by-step how to do cultural theory for themselves.

The greatest strength of David Walton's book is that it systematically engages with these difficult theories...it is a serious attempt to `translate' the main concepts of French Cultural Theory for an Anglo-Saxon readership. -- Karen Bennett * Cultural Studies Journal *
