b Television Technology and Cultural Form b was first published in long before the dawn of multi channel TV or the reality and celebrity shows that now pack the schedules Yet Williams analysis of television s history its institutions programmes and practices and its future prospects remains remarkably prescient p Williams stresses the importance of technology in shaping the cultural form of television while always resisting the determinism of McLuhan s dictum that the medium is the message If the medium really is the message Williams asks what is left for us to do or say Williams argues that on the contrary we as viewers have the power to disturb disrupt and to distract the otherwise cold logic of history and technology not just because television is part of the fabric of our daily lives but because new technologies continue to offer opportunities momentarily outside the sway of transnational corporations or the grasp of media moguls for new forms of self and political expression p, em Modern Tragedy em is a study of the ideas and ideologies which have influenced the production and analysis of tragedy, A comprehensive introduction to the work of one of the outstanding intellectuals of the twentieth century br br Raymond Williams is a towering presence in cultural studies most importantly as the founder of the approach that has come to be known as cultural materialism Yet Williams s method was always open ended and fluid and this volume collects together his most significant work from over a twenty year period in which he wrestled with the concepts of materialism and culture and their interrelationship Aside from his more directly theoretical texts however case studies of theatrical naturalism the Bloomsbury group advertising science fiction and the Welsh novel are also included as illustrations of the method at work Finally Williams s identity as an active socialist rather than simply br an academic is captured by two unambiguously political pieces on the past present and future of Marxism, Now revised to include new words and updated essays Keywords focuses on the sociology of language demonstrating how the key words we use to understand our society take on new meanings and how these changes reflect the political bent and values of society
