"The Cultural Studies Reader" provides an introduction for students of this discipline. It presents a selection of influential and innovative essays in the field by writers such as Barthes, Adorno, Lyotard, Stuart Hall and Gayatri Spivak, with a succinct introduction to each. The book encompasses a wide range of topics, from sport to postmodernism, from museums to supermarkets, from gay writing to rock and roll, and covers every important cultural studies method and theory. The book can be used as much more than an introductory anthology: Simon During's introduction to the field surveys the history and development of cultural studies, from its origins in sociological analysis of post-war Britain to its present as a truly trans-national discipline. Looking at the future possibilities for cultural studies, he argues that cultural studies methodologies offer great potential for confronting such contemporary issues as postcolonialism, globalization and multiculturalism.

Simon During teaches English and Cultural Studies at the University of Melbourne. His publications include Foucault and Literature (Routledge, 1992), Patrick White (1996), and many articles in literary and cultural studies.From Library Journal:
Editor During ( Foucault and Literature , Routledge, 1992) highlights major issues, trends, and hypotheses critical to scholars of contemporary culture since the 1950s, when cultural studies emerged as an academic discipline. The 27 essays by Theodor Adorno, Roland Barthes, Teresa de Lauretis, Michel Foucault, Michele Wallace, and Cornel West, among others, range from ethnicity, multiculturalism, and sexuality to theory and method. Comments and suggested readings accompany each essay, and a valuable introduction places the intellectual and political forces that have shaped cultural studies in their historical context. This volume will appeal to advanced students and scholars; recommended for libraries with in-depth collections in cultural studies and sociology.
