Description - The New American Cultural Sociology by Philip Smith

American Cultural Sociology presents a serious challenge to British Cultural Studies and European grand theory alike. This exciting new volume brings together sixteen seminal papers by leading figures in what is emerging as a new and important intellectual tradition. It places them in the context of related work in sociology and other disciplines, exploring the connections between cultural sociology and different approaches, such as comparative and historical research, postmodernism, and symbolic interactionism. The book is divided into three sections: Culture as Text and Code, The Production and Reception of Culture, and Culture in Action. Each section contains edited contributions, both theoretical and empirical, addressing the key debates in cultural sociology, including the autonomy of culture, power and culture, structure and agency, and how to conceptualise meaning.
