This reader in popular cultural studies meets the need for an up-to-date collection of readings on contemporary youth cultures and youth music. From Rave to Disco and House to Northern Soul, the material gathered in this volume helps to distinguish 'popular cultural studies' from some aspects of the theoretical work of 'contemporary cultural studies'. In doing so, the important ethnographic work associated with contemporary cultural studies traditions of youth and popular culture research is consolidated, extended and applied to contemporary culture in the 1990s. Combining description and theory in a clear pedagogical framework, this will be essential reading for upper-level students following courses on population, culture, youth culture and popular music within the disciplines of cultural studies, communication studies, sociology, and media studies.
