Postmodernism and Popular Culture brings together eleven recent essays by Angela McRobbie in a collection which deals with the issues which have dominated cultural studies over the last ten years. A key theme is the notion of postmodernity as a space for social change and political potential. McRobbie explores everyday life as a site of immense social and psychic complexity to which she argues that cultural studies scholars must return through ethnic and empirical work; the sound of living voices and spoken language. She also argues for feminists working in the field to continue to question the place and meaning of feminist theory in a postmodern society. In addition, she examines the new youth cultures as images of social change and signs of profound social transformation. Bringing together complex ideas about cultural studies today in a lively and accessible format, Angela McRobbie's new collection will be of immense value to all teachers and students of the subject.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"brings together thoretical essays on postmodernism and specific analyses of issues in the study of youth culture; the collection includes essays om Susan Sontag and Walter Benjiman, and an interview with Gayatri Spivak. Written over several years, the theoretical essays can be seen as tracing the evolution of debates over the definitions and implications of postmodernism from the 1980s and early 1990s, and are situated within a British cultural and cultural studies milieu.."
