In an age where film stars become presidents and politicians appear in television sitcoms, politics and popular culture have become inextricably linked. In order to understand this evolving relationship, author John Street argues that we must understand that each is a form of the other. Popular culture involves the organizing of our pleasure, and therefore our values, identities, and interests. At the same time, our pleasure depends on a series of political decisions and processes which in turn shape that culture.Did East German rock musicians contribute to bringing down the Berlin wall? How does popular culture create feelings of compassion, empathy, or affinity? Street reflects on the use of popular culture to raise money and awareness via the concert for a cause, such as Live Aid, Farm Aid, and Comic Relief. What role does censorship play in our appreciation and acceptance of popular culture, as well as in the development of an ideology?Ferreting out the debate between those who see the political nature of popular culture as a form of manipulation and those who see it as populist self-expression, Street argues that such an approach limits our perspective. This book attempts to expand our understanding of the ways the production and consumption of popular culture are organized, and, concurrently, how political judgments are inherent in engendering and enjoying pop culture.

This innovative and widely praised volume uses the dramatic occupation of Tiananmen Square as the foundation for rethinking the cultural dimensions of Chinese politics. Now in a revised and expanded second edition, the book includes enhanced coverage of key issues, such as the political dimensions of popular culture (addressed in a new chapter on Chinese rock-and-roll by Andrew Jones) and the struggle for control of public discourse in the post-1989 era (discussed in a new chapter by Tony Saich). Two especially valuable additions to the second edition are art historian Tsao Tsing-yuan's eyewitness account of the making of the Goddess of Democracy, and an exposition of Chinese understandings of the term ?revolution? contributed by Liu Xiaobo, one of China's most controversial dissident intellectuals. The volume also includes an analysis (by noted social theorist and historical sociologist Craig C. Calhoun) of the similarities and differences between the ?new? social movements of recent decades and the ?old? social movements of earlier eras.TEXT CONCLUSION: To facilitate classroom use, the volume has been reorganized into groups of interrelated essays. The editors introduce each section and offer a list of suggested readings that complement the material in that section.

"The author's style is breezy and likable, but many of his references to Australian music and sports concepts and studies will be unfamiliar to readers in the U.S. The latter fact may be a good reason for reading the book, as means of testing the generality of accepted thought about sport and music." --Choice "Relentlessly intelligent, at once critical and respectful of its subjects, and carefully documented, David Rowe's book is especially useful for working through the bipolar opposition between theories of power and theories of resistance, between large-scale political economic domination and localized oppositional readings. Forceful and pointed, yet accepting a degree of inconclusiveness, Rowe works through the complete range of relevant theoretical formulations and conflicting real-world forces. Rowe's theoretical sophistication is a godsend. He knows and enjoys the pleasures of his subjects but examines them with demanding originality. Never content with the easy or the obvious, this work marks a significant advance in cultural theory and application. Popular Cultures places David Rowe in the first-rank of cultural theorists." --Michael Real, Telecommunications and Film Department, San Diego State University Rock music and sport are the pulse of Popular Cultures, a fascinating examination of the interrelations between economics, ideology, and culture. This book gives the reader a unique insight into the dynamics of rock music and sport, discussing how they encompass the contradictory elements of popular culture. Using punk rock music as a case study, author David Rowe analyzes it in terms of production, practical consciousness, and symbolic expression--a blending of cultural studies and political economy. Using rock music and sport as case studies, the author effectively combines economics, culture, and popular forms of recreation. Thus, this book is essential reading for students and researchers in popular culture, cultural studies, leisure studies, sociology, communication, and related fields of study.
