              `Stevenson's exciting collection takes the issue of cultural citizenship far beyond the liberal concerns with tolerance, diversity, social rights and obligations. The attainment of such citizenship, the author's argue, is conditional on positive cultural democratization, that is,... the availability of cultural resources (semiotic and material) essential for meaningful and critical life, as well as the public institutions protecting us from the excesses of the free market . Both are considered within the context of the IT revolution ( electronic democracy ), new social movements (especially feminist), and identity formation. The volume, especially the contributions by Turner, Crossley, Elliott, Yeatman and Frosh, demonstrates the vitality of theoretical reflection linking citizenship, culture and democracy' - Jan Pakulski, University of Tasmania `Culture' and `citizenship' are two of the most hotly contested concepts in the social sciences.What do they really mean? What are the relationships between them? This lively and penetrating book outlines the new linkages between culture and citizenship. In particular, it sheds light on issues of inclusion and exclusion, market and policy, rights and responsibilities, and the definition of citizens and non-citizens. Substantive topics investigated include: cultural democracy; intersubjectivity and the unconscious; globalization and the nation state; European citizenship; and discourses on cultural policy. For anyone working or studying at the interface between citizenship and culture, this is an indispensable and timely volume.

              The changing pattern of contemporary media is one of the most striking and important transformations of our age. This major new work seeks to understand the implications of a series of mediated processes in relation to public cultures and modern identities. In The Transformation ...of the Media the author leads the reader through a number of complex theoretical issues, connecting the nature of modern communication to the affects this has on our common moral and ethical lives. Most significantly, he argues that a number of perspectives as diverse as Marxism, post-modernism, liberalism, communitarianism and technological determinism can all be found wanting in this regard. The Transformation of the Media attempts to situate the media, and more theoretical concerns, within a broad sociological framework. The volume adds to our shared understanding of the media's relation to contemporary cultural transformations including globalisation, the development of informational capitalism, the changing nature of the public sphere and the impact of new social movements. More specifically, through a discussion of the 'new media order' and the Rwandan genocide a critical prism is held up to existing debates concerning the globalisation of the media. Key features: * an extremely topical and accessible analysis of the media's implications for * contemporary cultural transformations * combines a theoretical and empirical approach * presents complex theoretical ideas in an accessible way This book will be essential reading for students studying globalisation, the global media, new media technology, identity and cultural development in cultural studies, media studies, and sociology and politics courses.
