Cultural Criticism
A Primer of Key Concepts



November 1994 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Arthur Asa Berger's unique ability to translate difficult theories into accessible language makes this book an ideal introduction to cultural criticism. Berger covers the key theorists, concepts, and subject areas, from literary, sociological, and psychoanalytical theories to semiotics and Marxism. Cultural Criticism breathes new life into the discipline by making these theories relevant to students' lives. The author illustrates his explanations with excerpts from classic works giving readers a sense of the important thinkers' style and helping place them in their context. Berger also provides a comprehensive bibliography on cultural criticism for those who wish to explore the topics at greater length.

Cultural Criticism is the perfect undergraduate supplemental text for such courses as media studies, literary criticism, and popular culture.
