Culture - WILLIAMS, Raymond

Fontana, 1983, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

This seminal, and scarce, work outlines an historical sociology of cultural institutions and formations, discusses the problem of analysing 'schools' and 'movements' which often escape conventional sociological method, and describes the means of cultural production from the point of view of cultural materialism - his own theoretical position. An examination of how particular kinds of work can be identified by social means as 'art' is followed by a discussion of forms, exemplified from drama, and an exploration of the idea of cultural reproduction and innovation. The book finished with an analysis of the social organization of culture, includes an extended critique of the concept of' intellectuals', and a related sociological analysis of 'cultural producers'.
