Ann Gray is Professor in Cultural Studies at the University of Lincoln.

Jim McGuigan is Professor of Cultural Analysis at the University of Loughborough. This lively and stimulating resource book for students of cultural studies traces the formation of the field in Britain and its subsequent development internationally. Classic statements of culturalist, semiological, and postmodernist perspectives are contrasted with less familiar material illustrating the impact of feminism and the politics of sexuality, ethnicity, and race. This second, greatly expanded edition includes a new section exploring recent important work in international cultural studies, and provides key readings on the social construction of the self and the role of public policy in the cultural field. "Gray and McGuigan have done students and teachers a great service."—Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
