"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."--Jacket

An idea and its servants : UNESCO from within by Richard Hoggart( Book )

14 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Idea and Its Servants is a book from the alternative, parallel universe of UNESCO. That universe can be found in the original architects' renderings of the UN complex as it was being designed and built. The images give impressions of mission, concentration, and important things being decided. Richard Hoggart was assistant director-general from 1971 to 1975 and reflects that epoch in this work; he also describes how UNESCO's mission became side-tracked by politics. Hoggart offers both idealism and accuracy when he reports what actually happens inside the UNESCO Secretariat. Readers may shrink from discussion of its bureaucracy, for the obvious reason that bureaucratic life is frequently mind-numbing. Hoggart reports that UNESCO's secretariat is hopeless, observing that, "...bad practices within the Secretariat are very bad indeed...." and that it has "...an atmosphere too much shot through with petty or large dishonesties." Hoggart's experiences remain relevant to our contemporary understanding of the world of multilateral organizations. While he reflects an earlier era in United Nations' history, the book is also a reminder that agencies, like individuals, are not eternal. They are subject to ideology, nationalism, and sheer logrolling. Hoggart examines all of this with a clear-eyed insider perspective. John Bolton's new introduction shows that the more one understands the insides of these entities, the less faith one can have that there is a long-term future in entrusting the affairs of human governance to them. Hoggart permits the reader to enjoy the talent of a great essayist and public servant, while Bolton tells us why we should remain properly skeptical of UNESCO in the twenty-first century

The way we live now by Richard Hoggart( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 300 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

Everyday language & everyday life by Richard Hoggart( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in English and held by 229 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

Essays & studies, 1987 : English and cultural studies broadening the context( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 212 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
First and last things by Richard Hoggart( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 179 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
