In recent years `culture' has become a central concern in a wide range of fields and disciplines. This book introduces the main substantive and theoretical strands of this `turn to culture' through the medium of a particular case study: that of the Sony Walkman. Using the example of the Walkman, the book indicates how and why cultural practices and institutions have come to play such a crucial part in our lives, and introduces some of the central ideas, concepts and methods of analysis involved in conducting cultural studies.

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

this is an important cultural studies text but almost in a historical sense - the normativity in evaluating any construct of consumer culture is too forefront to result in a truly insightful conclusion. Still, there is a lot of value in reading this historically, and considering the possibilities of 'reading' culture as text.
