What is the relationship between the meanings found in popular art and in forms such as science, religion and ordinary speech? The task before the media is to turn recent advances in the science of culture towards the characteristic products of contemporary life: news stories bureaucratic language, love songs, political rhetoric daytime serials, television drama, talk shows and the wider world of contemporary leisure, ritual and information. It is not the study of the masses or the mass media, but to relate the industrial production of culture and conventions through which it is produced to the wider world of meaning significance and interpretation to an entire way of life. By connecting major streams of theory to the latest trends in the global cultural mix, the book provides a fresh and unsurpassed introduction to media, communication and cultural studies.
