Summary
Covering the key theorists, concepts and subject areas, from literary, sociological and psychoanalytical theories of semiotics and Marxism, Berger brings cultural criticism to life by making these theories relevant to students' lives. Illustrating his explanations with excerpts from classic works, he gives readers a sense of the style of important thinkers and helps place them in context
