Sets out to explain precisely what is meant by the term 'culture industry', providing an accessible exposition of the key themes and concepts.
Textual analysis is combined with a series of wide-ranging case-studies designed to show how the theory of the culture industry can be used to approach more recent cultural phenomena.
Examining contemporary film, pop music and art, as well as dating agencies and the paparazzi, Steinert provides lively examples that reveal the ways in which culture is commodified today.
