Focusing on key themes associated with modernity ? secularisation, industrialisation, social cohesion and control, globalisation and technological change ? this synthesis of research across a very wide field fills a gap that has long been felt by students and educators working in the field of popular culture. While it is organised as a history of cultural forms, it can also be used across a wide range of social science and humanities programmes, including media and cultural studies, literary studies, sociology and European studies. Covering the subject with a broad number of themes, this book discusses popular culture through visual culture and performance, games, music, film, television and video games.


Popular Culture in Europe since 1800 will be of interest to anyone looking for an engaged but concise overview of how book production and reading practices, visual cultures, music, performance and sports and games developed across Europe in the modern period.



From Zazel the Human Cannonball to the Eurovision Song Contest, Tobias Becker and Len Platt explore the trajectory of popular culture and mass entertainment in the modern age.? This is an ambitious but completely accessible book for students and the general reader.


Professor Rohan McWilliam, Anglia Ruskin University


This wide-ranging but concise overview puts popular culture at the heart of the story of modern Europe. Surveying forms and genres from motion pictures and musical theater to pop music and video games, it reveals how technological innovations and exchanges of ideas remade culture across three centuries. Popular culture is built on the interplay between the local and the global, Europe and America, "high" and "low" ? this illuminating work makes those complex processes accessible to students.


Julia Sneeringer, Queens College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York, USA
