'Examining theoretical frameworks, policy issues, and research approaches, Bennett and Frow's pre-eminent collection robustly defends the importance of the 'cultural turn', and richly deserves attention and analysis in its own right. Taking in a far broader sweep than the allegiances of cultural studies, and ranging far wider than a focus on cultural theory alone, this Handbook offers a genuine one-stop reference point for the many, many differing strands of cultural analysis.
This isn't just one contender among many for the title of 'best multidisciplinary overview'; this is a true heavyweight' - Matt Hills, Cardiff University
'Two of the most significant theorists in the study of culture bring together a range of influential and engaging writers, not just to define and map areas, but also to set the agenda for the future investigation of culture. This handbook is an achievement and a delight - both compelling and useful' - Professor Beverley Skeggs, Goldsmith's College, University of London
