Format: Paperback
Thi is still a classic text, which no one interested in C.20 Marxism and the study of culture and society, can afford to miss. Many of these essays have gone on to achieve clasic status-- jameson, hall, west, spivak, lefebvre, laclau, pecheux and balibar. All great pieces. whats esp valuable are the exchanges b/w particpants-- this bk, includes highlights from the discussion sections after the talks.
The writing is uniformly excellent, and most are immediately accessible to non-academic intellectuals. Kudos to grossberg and nelson and the unit for criticism for putting this collection/event together years ago. If this bk goes out of print, it''l be a crime against humanity

This book has so many essays to choose from that will enhance your knowledge of Marxist cultural theory and will open your mind to new approaches when analyzing literature and cultural utterances. I particularly like the Henri Lefebvre essay "Towards a Leftist Cultural Politics" and Fredric Jameson's "Cognitive Mapping," which has the seeds of many of the ideas he proffers in his voluminous work on Postmodernism. If this is a required text for a critical theory class, your analytic processes will definitely benefit from this collection of essays.

Format: Paperback
An incredibly jargon-laden work. Sadly, many of the contributors really have nothing to say and spend a long time not saying it. On a few occasions, however, some of the contributions really shine and remind one that not all of academia is populated by mediocrity.
