  • Theory, Culture & Society

    Theory, Culture & Society caters for the resurgence of interest in culture within contemporary social science and the humanities. Building on the heritage of classical social theory, the book series examines ways in which this tradition has been reshaped by a new generation of theorists. It also publishes theoretically informed analyses of everyday life, popular culture, and new intellectual movements.

    This book is dedicated to Francesca and Max


    Writing a book of this scope inevitably involves relying on the advice, support and encouragement of a number of people. The Theory, Culture and Society editorial group and Chris Rojek of Sage publications have been particularly supportive of our ongoing project. For reading and commenting upon various chapters of our study, we are indebted to Ross Abbinnett, Nigel Biggar, Barry Cooper, Michael Erben, Jim Ginther, Linda Hogan, Pauline Leonard, Mark Mitchell, Barry Smart and John Solomos. Mike Gane and Keith Tester read through the whole manuscript, and the book has benefited from their expertise. The ongoing support of Stephen Mennell and Eric Dunning has been invaluable, as has the intellectual stimulus provided by the University College Dublin/University of Portsmouth link. We would like to thank the Arts and Humanities Research Board and the Universities of Leeds and Portsmouth for the funding that made this work possible. We need to emphasise, however, that responsibility for the arguments developed here, and any deficiencies in the text, is entirely ours. Finally, on a personal note, this project would have been impossible without the inspiration provided by Murielle and Debbie, Francesca, Max and Catherine.
