Production of Culture/Cultures of Production
- Paul du Gay - Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
Communication and Media Studies (General) | Cultural Studies (General)
Throughout, the book illustrates that contemporary cultural goods and services are inextricably bound up with economic processes of production, circulation and exchange.
Paul Du Gay's book is an accesible and interesting text on the Production of Culture. It expands the Circuit of Culture theory. Although the text has been regularly re printed it would benefit from an update as it is a little dated having been written in 1997. I look forward to the second edition. Given the excellent revision that Du Gay et al have completed on the seminal text - the Story of the Sony Walkman - I am sure that a 2nd edition of this informative text would make a valuable contribution to the field.
This edition some great things but needs a more modern edition
