Since 1997 Representation has been the key go-to textbook for students learning the tools to question and critically analyze institutional and media texts and images. This long-awaited Second Edition updates and refreshes the approach to theories of representation by signalling key developments in the field, addresses the emergence of new technologies and formats of representation, from the internet and the digital revolution to reality TV, includes an entirely new chapter on celebrity culture and personalisation, to debates about representation and democracy, and involve illustrations of an intertextual nature, cutting across various technologies and formats in which 'the real' or the authentic makes an appearance a¢ offers new exercises, new readings, new images and examples for a new generation of students. This book will once again prove an indispensible resource for students and teachers in cultural and media studies.

The Work of Representation - Stuart Hall The Range of Reality: Documentary Film and Television - Frances Bonner The Poetics and Politics of Exhibiting Other Cultures - Henrietta Lidchi The Spectacle of the 'Other' - Stuart Hall Exhibiting Masculinity - Sean Nixon Genre and Gender: The Case of Soap Opera - Christine Gledhill and Vicki Ball

This is simply a magnificent collection of chapters, laced together under the guiding light of Stuart Hall's outstanding scholarship. The chapters each exemplify the very best modes of cultural studies writing, theoretically informed, lucid, vividly alive and relevant to students and to general readers across the arts, humanities and social sciences. New material by Stuart Hall is particularly welcome, and will be much appreciated given his key role in the development of post-colonial as well as cultural studies. In particular we see Hall lay out the conceptual groundwork for an extensive study of the media from the viewpoint of 'race' and ethnicity. Angela McRobbie
Professor of Communications, Goldsmiths, University of London




The second edition of Representation should enable it to speak to new generations of students and to continue to serve as the authoritative introduction to the theories and politics of meaning and representation in cultural studies. Anyone interested in these matters, whether student, teacher or simply curious intellect, will be glad for the time spent reading this book. Lawrence Grossberg
