    One thought on “Culture/Metaculture (The New Critical Idiom)”

    1. This is a great read for everyone concerned with Cultural Studies, as well as struggles for power or will. Starting from the term of "Kulturkritik", Mulhern greatly describes every transition of the cultural studies featuring Marxism, Hoggart, Hall etc.

    2. One of the best and most insightful explorations of the contest and complex politics of culture on the 19th and 20th century Anglo-American worlds from the excellent New Critical Idiom series. Mulhern presents a rich and nuanced case while remaining generous and fair to those he critiques.
