Summary
"British Cultural Studies maps the dynamics of contemporary British culture, seeking to identify its new configurations and to trace the dimensions of its emerging faultlines, including those deriving from the nation's colonial heritage and from the new forms of cultural politics - ethnic, regionalist, environmentalist, and consumerist - which now characterize this increasingly fragmented and diverse nation." "The book includes over thirty essays covering almost every aspect of culture and identity in Britain today and addressing the current transformations of this culture and identity in the context of globalization. The opening section of the book deals with different conceptions of Britishness and identity, including English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Asian and Black British identities. Section two then analyses the interplay between tradition and heritage in contemporary culture, whilst the final section looks at the world of lifestyle groups, subcultures, and cultural politics and the way in which they have come in many ways to substitute for notions of Britishness."--BOOK JACKET
