The third edition of 'Popular Music and Society' is fully revised and updated, exploring the study of popular music in the context of wider debates in sociology and media and cultural studies. The book begins by examining the ways in which popular music is produced before moving on to explore its structure as text and the ways in which audiences understand and use music. The book contains overviews and critiques of theoretical approaches and outlines the most important empirical studies which have shaped the discipline.
