"The book will provide a very welcome service in the classroom. Toby Miller has produced a volume of sound structure and organization. The contributors bring a rich mix of authority and experience to the book." Tony Bennett, The Open University
"As a whole the collection beautifully captures the restlessness, the malleability, and the theoretical flexibility of cultural studies, while at the same time exposing some of its limitations and failings ... Overall this is a provocative, readable and useful collection which points as much to the future as the past of cultural studies. It is a valuable point of reference for those who teach or research in any of the disciplines and fields touched by cultural studies, and especially those who are in the process of discovering and grappling with this 'tendency across disciplines'." Media International Australia
"Topics and methods of the global contributors are diverse and imaginative... readable and accessible to unitiated outsiders and curious onlookers." Choice
