About this product
- DescriptionRaymond Williams_a Welsh media critic and a pioneer of cultural studies_believed that the traditional focus of biographies on individuals isolated these people from their communities. For this reason, Alan O'Conr looks at Williams and his time period_one of social change and crisis. Williams, son of a railway worker, would have pursued university studies had World War II t disrupted his plans. So the urthodox intellectual worked outside the university until 1960, his revolutionary media studies emphasizing the interchange between culture and democracy. O'Conr concludes with the same message Williams advocated: In a period dominated by conservative forces, it is still worthwhile to struggle for small changes.
