This text explores the difficulties of defining a sociology of 'culture', emphasising the complex, interdisciplinary nature of 'cultural studies', and the variety of theoretical contributions from sociology, literature, history and anthropology. Intended for a wide range of undergraduates, the text covers areas not usually included in cultural studies, together with those more familiar to the field. It deals with the development and breakdown of key conceptual distinctions, like structure/culture, culture/knowledge, objective reality/subjective experience and the implications for the study of culture.

What is Culture? - Theoretical and Methodological Issues in the Study of Culture - 'High' Culture, Art and Aesthetics - Culture and Imperialism - Race, Ethnicity and Culture - Class and Culture - Gendered Cultures - Education - Media: Creating Popular Culture - Disintegrations and Reintegrations: Future Directions in the Sociology of Culture
