It represents the first theoretically informed study of the way that popular culture is lived, imagined, fought over and negotiated in modern and contemporary France.It covers a wide range of overarching concerns: the roles of state policy, the market, political ideologies, changing social contexts and new technologies in the construction of the popular.

But it also provides a set of specific case studies showing how popular songs, stories, films, TV programmes and language styles have become indispensable elements of culture in France. Deploying yet also rethinking a Cultural Studies approach to the popular, the book therefore challenges dominant views of what French culture really means today.
