"The book's overall approach - recognizable now as cultural studies - became widely influential when Reading Television was first published in 1978, and it continues to shape the field internationally. In this edition, John Hartley reflects on the development of television studies since then and provides invaluable new suggestions for further reading. His fascinating foreword both underlines and ensures the continuing relevance of this foundational text, which provides the ideal entry point for anyone wanting to understand the place of television within contemporary culture."--BOOK JACKET

He examines the multitude of meanings lying beneath the cultural artifacts that surround us in shopping malls, popular music and television. Features: highlights the conflicting responses that cultural phenomenon such as Madonna and the Chicago Sears Tower evoke. locates popular culture as the point at which people take the goods offered them by industrial capitalism and turn them to their own creative, and even subversive, uses. refutes the theory that a mass audience mindlessly consumes every product it is offered
