"Arguably the most famous book in its field... In theoretical terms, the legacy of Doing Cultural Studies confirms that this classic read is not just about the Walkman itself, but represents a series of clear observations about the symbolic meanings of culture." - LSE Review of Books Why think about the Walkman in the 21st century? Can the Walkman help us understand today’s media and cultural practices?

It remains the perfect 'how to' for students in media studies, cultural studies, design and sociology.
