"The book's overall approach - recognizable now as cultural studies - became widely influential when Reading Television was first published in 1978, and it continues to shape the field internationally. In this edition, John Hartley reflects on the development of television studies since then and provides invaluable new suggestions for further reading. His fascinating foreword both underlines and ensures the continuing relevance of this foundational text, which provides the ideal entry point for anyone wanting to understand the place of television within contemporary culture."--Jacket
Introduction to communication studies by John Fiske( Book )

In the second edition of this introductory text John Fiske draws upon the main authorities in the field, from Shannon and Weaver's Communication Theory to Saussure's structural linguistics and Peirce's Semiotics. He examines the two main schools: seeing communication as the encoding, transmission, and decoding of messages; and viewing communication as the generation of meanings. --From publisher's description
Understanding popular culture by John Fiske( Book )

90 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This revised edition of a now classic text includes a new introduction by Henry Jenkins, explaining 'Why Fiske Still Matters' for today's students, followed by a discussion between former Fiske students Kevin Glynn, Jonathan Gray, and Pamela Wilson on the theme of 'Reading Fiske and Understanding the Popular'. Both underline the continuing relevance of this foundational text in the study of popular culture. What is popular culture? How does it differ from mass culture? And what do popular 'texts' reveal about class, race, and gender dynamics in a society? John Fiske answers these and a host of other questions in "Understanding Popular Culture". When it was first written, "Understanding Popular Culture" took a groundbreaking approach to studying such cultural artifacts as jeans, shopping malls, tabloid newspapers, and TV game shows, which remains relevant today. Fiske differentiates between mass culture - the cultural 'products' put out by an industrialized, capitalist society - and popular culture - the ways in which people use, abuse, and subvert these products to create their own meanings and messages. Rather than focusing on mass culture's attempts to dominate and homogenize, he prefers to look at (and revel in) popular culture's evasions and manipulations of these attempts. Designed as a companion to "Reading the Popular", "Understanding Popular Culture" presents a radically different theory of what it means for culture to be popular: that it is, literally, of the people. It is not imposed on them, it is created by them, and its pleasures and meanings reflect popular tastes and concerns - and a rejection of those fostered by mass culture. With wit, clarity, and insight, Professor Fiske debunks the myth of the mindless mass audience, and demonstrates that, in myriad ways, popular culture thrives because that audience is more aware than anyone guesses
Media matters : everyday culture and political change by John Fiske( Book )

46 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fiske also analyzes speeches by George Bush, Dan Quayle, and Pat Buchanan, along with media commentary by Rush Limbaugh and CNN's Greg LaMotte, to reveal what Americans successfully rejected in ushering out the Reagan era. Through his analysis of the contradictory and diverse voices that make up U.S. culture, Fiske traces the nation's swing away from Reaganism and offers urgent warnings for the future

Power plays, power works by John Fiske( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on a diverse set of cultural sites - from alternative talk radio forums, museums, celebrity fandom, to social problems such as homelessness - Fiske traverses the topography of the American cultural landscape to highlight the ways that ordinary people creatively construct their social identities and relationships through the use of the resources available to them, while constrained by social conditions not of their own choosing. This important analysis provides a set of critical methodological and analytical tools to grapple with the complexities and struggles of contemporary social life."--Page 4 of cover
Living with early oak : seventeenth-century English furniture then and now by John Fiske( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When oak was new : English furniture & daily life, 1530-1700 by John Fiske( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Informed by John Fiske's experience as a dealer in English oak furniture, 'When Oak Was New' provides an in-depth guided tour of familiar and lesser-known forms for both the novice and experienced collector. 'When Oak Was New' invites readers to look at antique furniture in a new way. In telling the story of English furniture from 1530 to 1700, Fiske blends witty accounts of daily life in Tudor and Stuart England with extensive photographs and close descriptions of the furniture that made those lifestyles convenient and comfortable. He shows that we cannot fully understand the furniture that we know as antique without understanding how its owners used it when it was new, and how a piece of furniture, in turn, captures its historical moment. Over 750 photographs vividly illustrate the boundless creativity of countless anonymous joiners and carvers whose work was central to the development of modern life
