`This is a much-needed and timely follow-up to an earlier reader by the well-respected communication journal Media Culture & Society. This recent reader consists of 15 publications taken from the period 1985-1991, subdivided into three main sections or parts: culture and power, the audience and everyday life, and the media and public life... This comprehensive reader of integrated critical media research will surely become an invaluable asset for all those scholars and students of media studies struggling to place power relations back at the centre of the debate about the nature and dynamics of the culture-society readership.' - Canadian Journal of Communication

`This reader of articles drawn from Media, Culture and Society presents a strong cross-section of studies which examine the importance of power for the study of culture. This book will be of interest to all those whose work involves the analysis of popular culture, the negotiation of the meaning of cultural texts, and the production of cultural forms' - The Canadian Journal of Sociology
