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 *
