Politics and Popular Culture


Politics and Popular Culture by John Street

In an age where film stars become presidents and politicians appear in pop videos, politics and popular culture have become inextricably interlinked. In this exciting new book, John Street provides a broad survey and analysis of this relationship.


John Streeta s Politics and Popular Culture is an engagingly written and interesting book. Street augments our understanding of the complex connections linking commercial culture to political power through careful exposition, clear examples, and a wonderfully knowing survey of contemporary writings on the subject. George Lipsitz, University of California, San Diego John Streeta s new volume provides a timely and accessible introduction to the topic [of media and communication studies], one which should be welcomed by the world of political science for its lucidity and attention to detail. International Affairs [A] well--informed survey. For readers and students in the field of Popular Music the book is an important addition to the literature. International Association for the Study of Popular Music (An) excellent, challenging and important book ... comprehensive and provocative critical treatment of the relationship between politics and popular culture ... [which] deserves to be a staple item on university reading--lists about politics and popular culture alike. It is likely to resonate with students, to provoke endless discussion and to provide political scientists and others with a way of opening up what many students view as staid or impenetrable theories about civic culture or rational choice ... a valuable first step.
