Über diesen Titel:
With the resurgent interest in his work today, this is a timely reevaluation of this foundational figure in Cultural Studies, a critical but friendly review of both Hoggart?s work and reputation.
- Re?examines the reputation of one of the inventors of Cultural Studies
- Uses new archival sources to critically evaluate Hoggart?s contribution and influence, set his work in context, and determine its current relevance
- Addresses detractors and their positions of Hoggart, delineating long?term ideological battles within academia
- Brings cultural studies, literary criticism, and social history to bear on this figure whose interests spread across disciplines, to create a text which blends many threads into a coherent whole
"This is an engaging, informative and combative work. It is exactly what it says, a critical introduction that moves way beyond plain description of Hoggart s life and works, showing the relevance (but also, sometimes, the limitations) of his work and constantly contextualizing it within debates in both Cultural Studies and the wider political field. It is extremely well rooted in the various relevant literatures but also adds much knowledge from new sources, particularly those contained in the Hoggart Archive. In every sense, it is a good advert for, and defence of, studying the Humanities."
? Dave Russell, Leeds Metropolitan University
A fascinating and insightful analysis of a leading public intellectual, obsessive auto?biographer, founder of a new academic discipline and original cultural critic. ? James Curran, Goldsmiths, University of London
The authors of Understanding Richard Hoggart highlight, with rigor and respect, the continuing relevance of Hoggart?s work to anyone with an interest in how the cultural landscape at once shapes, and is shaped by, our individual habits." ? Lynsey Hanley, journalist and author of ?Estates: an Intimate History?

Anbieterinformationen: We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
