"This dictionary of cultural studies provides a handy and wonderfully comprehensive guide- it doesn’t purport to tell the whole story, but it does offer to introduce readers and point out further paths. This short dictionary is a wonderful addition to the world of cultural studies. Students will find it a godsend; teachers, a springboardto an exciting intellectual milieu within communication studies; and libraries, a hard-to-keep-the shelves volume."

Paul A. Soukup

The Dictionary is very good for students, who want easy access to well writen and short paragraphs about many essential subjects in Cultural Studies. I recommend this book for students of Culture.
