Description - Encyclopaedia of Contemporary British Culture by Peter Childs

Boasting more than 970 alphabetically-arranged entries, the Encyclopedia of Contemporary British Culture surveys British cultural practices and icons in the latter half of the twentieth century. Examining both high culture and popular culture, and encompassing the more institutional as well as alternative aspects of British culture (from architecture to pubs, film to internet to current takes on the monarchy), the Encyclopedia casts its net over the whole range of British contemporary life. These entries provide insight into a culture which is dynamic, eclectic and in a constant state of flux. A comprehensive system of cross-referencing and a thematic contents list assists readers to identify entries from particular fields. Entries range from short biographical synopses of the careers of key individuals to longer overview essays which explore the main issues within contemporary cultural debates. Bringing together subjects rarely found in one volume, the Encyclopedia of Contemporary British Culture defines "culture" in its broadest sense. Readership: This Encyclopedia is essential reading for anyone interested in British culture and also provides a cultural context for students of English, Modern History and Comparative European Studies. Consultant editors: Andor Gomme Keele University Peter Bailey John Moores University Jo Croft John Moores University Margaret Marshment John Moores University Frank McDonou
