Mix It Up
Popular Culture, Mass Media, and Society
A twenty-first century introduction to sociological thinking on pop culture, the media, and society.
Mix It Up demonstrates how a sociological perspective can help us better understand popular culture as a dynamic, durable and significant feature of modern society. With lively prose and the perfect mix of resonant historical cases, David Grazian investigates the role of media and popular culture in everyday life. Now with a new chapter on the globalisation of pop culture, Mix It Up explores how the media industry is organised; the increasingly blurry relationship between cultural consumption and production; and the social significance of leisure activities.
