Teaches straightforward ways of practicing these theories so students learn to think for themselves. Uses 'Practice' boxes to show students how to apply cultural theory in the real world. Guides students through the literature with carefully selected further reading recommendations Other textbooks only show how others have analyzed and interpreted the world. Doing Cultural Theory takes it a step further and teaches students step-by-step how to do cultural theory for themselves." -- Publisher's website.
