Description - Confronting Culture by David Inglis

Confronting Culture offers a clear and accessible discussion
and analysis of the complex field of the sociology of culture, and
how it compares with approaches developed within cultural
studies.


An accessible guide to the complex field of the sociological
study of culture.

Unique in showing how sociological understandings of culture
often differ from rival approaches in the discipline of cultural
studies.

Introduces the various ways of thinking sociologically about
culture that have been developed over the last century.

Examines the legacy of classical sociology for the sociology of
culture, and situates thinking about culture within the historical,
cultural and social contexts of the rival schools of thought in the
US, UK, France and Germany.

Examples of topics under discussion include the rise of
postmodernism, the American production of culture approach, and the
cultural sociology of Pierre Bourdieu.
