Mass media in a mass society : myth and reality by Richard Hoggart( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
La culture du pauvre by Richard Hoggart( Book )

81 editions published between 1957 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

14 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in English and held by 557 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 " 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

15 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 304 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 232 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 207 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 held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Hoggart does not pretend to have any easy answers, but he is not afraid to address the big questions: the problem (as he finds it) of faith; the mysterious origins of conscience and its impact upon our conduct; the nature of society and class in an age of triumphal capitalism; the importance of family and friends; the value of literature and, in conclusion, the nature of memory and the need, in old age, to find some value in existence." "First and Last Things is a work that the young should read, if only to discover how much there is still to understand, and that the old will treasure."--BOOK JACKET
