Book Description

Over 25 years ago, Raymond Williams' "Keywords: A Vocabulary of Culture and Society" set the standard for how we understand and use the language of culture and society.

"New Keywords: A Revised Vocabulary of Culture and Society" is a state-of-the-art reference for students, teachers and culture vultures everywhere.The book assembles a stellar team of internationally renowned and interdisciplinary social thinkers and theorists; showcases 142 signed entries - from art, commodity, and fundamentalism to youth, utopia, the virtual, and the West - that capture the practices, institutions, and debates of contemporary society; builds on and updates Raymond Williams' classic "Keywords: A Vocabulary of Culture and Society", by reflecting the transformation in culture and society over the last 25 years; and, includes a bibliographic resource to guide research and cross-referencing. The book is supported by a website.
