Praise for the 3rd edition - 'a major collection of previously published work… It nevertheless continues to represent a collection of major work in and around the disciplinary intersections that the not-discipline of cultural studies likes to call home. Ultimately, this is one collection that's still worth having on your bookshelf.' - M/C-Reviews
