"The central focus of the book is an examination of broadcasting as the prime disseminator of mass information. Hoggart makes an impassioned argument for Public Service Broadcasting in its truest form, and sees the Public Service ideal as coming increasingly under attack from today's BBC broadcasters who seem to believe that the overwhelming function of television today is to entertain."--BOOK JACKET

"This pioneering work examines changes in the life and values of the English working class in response to mass media. First published in 1957, it mapped out a new methodology in cultural studies based around interdisciplinarity and a concern with how texts-in this case, mass publications-are stitched into the patterns of lived experience. Mixing personal memoir with social history and cultural critique, The Uses of Literacy anticipates recent interest in modes of cultural analysis that refuse to hide the author behind the mask of objective social scientific technique. In its method and in its rich accumulation of the detail of working-class life, this volume remains useful and absorbing.Hoggart's analysis achieves much of its power through a careful delineation of the complexities of working-class attitudes and its sensitivity to the physical and environmental facts of working-class life. The people he portrays are neither the sentimentalized victims of a culture of deference nor neo-fascist hooligans. Hoggart sees beyond habits to what habits stand for and sees through statements to what the statements really mean. He thus detects the differing pressures of emotion behind idiomatic phrases and ritualistic observances.Through close observation and an emotional empathy deriving, in part, from his own working-class background, Hoggart defines a fairly homogeneous and representative group of working-class people. Against this background may be seen how the various appeals of mass publications and other artifacts of popular culture connect with traditional and commonly accepted attitudes, how they are altering those attitudes, and how they are meeting resistance. Hoggart argues that the appeals made by mass publicists-more insistent, effective, and pervasive than in the past-are moving toward the creation of an undifferentiated mass culture and that the remnants of an authentic urban culture are being destroyed.In his introduction to this new edition, Andrew Goodwin, professor of broadcast communications arts at San Francisco State University, defines Hoggart's place among contending schools of English cultural criticism and points out the prescience of his analysis for developments in England over the past thirty years. He notes as well the fruitful links to be made between Hoggart's method and findings and aspects of popular culture in the United States."--Provided by publisher

12 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This powerful book is an impassioned attempt by one of our most distinguished critics to capture the feel of British life at the end of the century: its moods, attitudes and institutions. Hoggart presents a double argument, suggesting first that our dilemmas stem from a long slide towards relativism, as consumerism rather than 'authority' increasingly determines the texture of life, and secondly that for the past sixteen years Conservative governments have exploited these changes to their own ends." "Blunt and forthright, humorous and humane, he supports his themes by analysing particular forms of change - in education at all levels, in the arts, mass and popular culture, in broadcasting, in the use of language and in the uncertain base of 'Cultural Studies' themselves. But he also shows how some forces have worked against this monumental process: old style checks and balances, the resistance of class feeling, the curious survival of patronage, the uneasy sense of lost values. And in this uncertainty, he asks, what are intellectuals doing? - failing to speak."--BOOK JACKET

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introducing this timely survey, Michael Green shows how English, media and cultural studies 'question and energise each other'. The contributors show the effect of this interaction, both in new approaches to literary analysis and in a concern with the broader context within which much academic English is recognised as operating. -- from back cover

Everyday language & everyday life by Richard Hoggart( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hoggart identifies the sayings and special nuances of the English working-class people that have made them identifiable as such, from the rude and obscene to the intellectual and imaginative. Hoggart also examines the areas of tolerance, local morality, and public morality, elaborating on current usage of words that have evolved from the fourteen through the eighteenth centuries. He touches on religion, superstition, and time, the beliefs that animate language. And finally, he focuses on aphorisms and social change and the emerging idioms of relativism, concluding that many early adages still in use seem to refuse to die." "With inimitable verve and humor, Hoggart offers adages, apothegms, epigrams and the like in this colorful examination drawn from the national pool and the common culture. This volume will interest scholars and general readers interested in culture studies, communications, and education."--Jacket
First and last things by Richard Hoggart( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Part meditation, part commonplace book, First and Last Things is an attempt by a writer of great distinction and strong convictions to take stock of his beliefs and values. Here, Richard Hoggart considers the big questions without shortchanging readers with easy answers. He examines problems (as he sees them) of faith; the mysterious origins of conscience; the importance of family and friends; the value of literature; the nature of memory; and the need, in old age, to find some value in existence. To these issues, and many others, the author brings a lifetime of rich experience and a mind well stocked with the best that has been written by those who have gone before.What emerges above all in this work is Richard Hoggart's love of, almost obsession with, quotations from great authors, especially, of course, Shakespeare. He muses on the business of capitalism and democracy, noting a reluctant conclusion that democracy is the least worst form of government, and that capitalism is its inevitable partner, but one which democratic societies should treat with "a very long spoon." He argues that market and consumer driven societies are inevitably led to relativism, head-counting, and populism. The result is a book that is introspective without being self-absorbed, that is thought-provoking but never preaching, that is, profound without being portentous. First and Last Things is a work that the young should read, if only to discover how much there is still to understand, and one that the old will treasure."--Provided by publisher
