Denzin and Giardina have brought together the works of leading cultural critics who have given cultural studies a global framework that meets our need to examine the governing strategies of the military, the economy, the media, and educational elites. ... This is a must-read for those who want cultural studies to really matter in the present moment." Patricia Ticineto Clough
Contesting Empire, Globalizing Dissent: Cultural Studies after 9/11 is a landmark text. Leading scholars from cultural studies, education, gender studies, and sociology reposition critical cultural studies research around the goals of moral clarity and political intervention. Chapters range in focus from neoliberalism and democracy to America's war on kids and the cultural politics of national identity.
