Keywords : a vocabulary of culture and society by Raymond Williams( Book )
164 editions published between 1976 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,263 libraries worldwide
"First published in 1976, Raymond Williams' highly acclaimed Keywords: A Vocabulary of Culture and Society is a collection of lively essays on words that are critical to understanding the modern world. In these essays, Williams, a renowned cultural critic, demonstrates how these key words take on new meanings and how these changes reflect the political bent and values of our past and current society. He chose words both essential and intangible--words like nature, underprivileged, industry, liberal, violence, to name a few--and, by tracing their etymology and evolution, grounds them in a wider political and cultural framework. The result is an illuminating account of the central vocabulary of ideological debate in English in the modern period. This edition features a new original foreword by Colin MacCabe, Distinguished Professor of English and Literature, University of Pittsburgh, that reflects on the significance of Williams' life and work. Keywords remains as relevant today as it was over thirty years ago, offering a provocative study of our language and an insightful look at the society in which we live"--
The country and the city by Raymond Williams( Book )
73 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,977 libraries worldwide
"Our collective notion of the city and country is irresistibly powerful. The city as the seat of enlightenment, sophistication, power and greed is in profound contrast with an innocent, peaceful, backward countryside. By examining literature since the sixteenth century, Williams traces the development of our conceptions of these two traditional poles of life. His groundbreaking study casts the country and city as central symbols for conceptualizing the social and economic changes associated with capitalist development."--Publisher description

Television : technology and cultural form by Raymond Williams( Book )
89 editions published between 1971 and 2015 in English and Turkish and held by 1,634 libraries worldwide
Twenty-first century TV offers an apparently endless stream of images, unfolding at high speed. We no longer watch individual programmes but flick between channels, absorbing a continuous flow of news, game shows, comedy, drama, movies, advertising and trailers. This text was first published in 1974, long before the dawn of multi-channel TV, or the reality and celebrity shows that now pack the schedules. Yet Williams' analysis of television's history, its institutions, programmes and practices, and its future prospects, remains prescient. Williams stresses the importance of technology in shaping the cultural form of television, while always resisting the determinism of the dictum that "the medium is the message". If the medium really is the message, he asks, what is left for us to do or say? Williams argues that we as viewers have the power to disturb, disrupt and to distract the logic of history and technology - not just because television is part of the fabric of our daily lives, but because new technologies continue to offer opportunities, momentarily outside the sway of transnational corporations or the grasp of media moguls, for new forms of self and political expression

Drama in performance by Raymond Williams( Book )
60 editions published between 1954 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 1,150 libraries worldwide
Raymond Williams' reputation rests mainly on his contribution to literary and cultural studies, but he was also an important critic and theoretician in the field of drama. "Drama in Performance", first published in 1954, pioneered a method of dramaturgical rather than literary-critical analysis of plays, locating dramatic texts in the conditions and conventions of their original performance and reading them to disclose their performance potentialities. This method, which anticipated such contemporary developments as performance analysis and the semiotics of drama, is here applied to representative texts from key periods of the history of drama: the Greek stage, the medieval theatre-in-the-round and pageant-wagon, the Elizabethan public playhouse, London commercial theatres from the Restoration to the late 19th century, the naturalist stage of the Moscow Art Theatre, 20th century experimental drama, and contemporary film. This edition presents the text as Williams revised it in 1966.; In addition, it provides an updated bibliography of work in this field, a complete listing of all Williams' relevant writings, and a new Introduction (by Graham Holderness), which locates the book both within modern dramatic theory and criticism, and within Williams' own work and demonstrates its continuing challenge and relevance

The politics of modernism : against the new conformists by Raymond Williams( Book )
49 editions published between 1989 and 2007 in English and held by 805 libraries worldwide
The founding father of cultural theory posits a radical new direction for avant-garde art. Considered to be the founding father of British cultural theory, Williams was concerned throughout his life to apply a materialist and socialist analysis to all forms of culture, defined generously and inclusively as “structures of feeling.” In this major work, Williams applies himself to the problem of modernism. Rejecting stereotypes and simplifications, he is especially preoccupied with the ambivalent relationship between revolutionary socialist politics and the artistic avant-garde. Judiciously assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the modernist project, Williams shifts the framework of discussion from merely formal analysis of artistic techniques to one which grounds these cultural expressions in particular social formations. Animating the whole book is the question which Williams poses and brings us significantly closer to answering: namely, what does it mean to develop a cultural analysis that goes ”beyond the modern” and yet avoids the trap of postmodernism’s “new conformism”?--Publisher website
