Description: Deconstruction thrives on uncertainty, which is often baffling for newcomers. Applying complex theory to recognisable examples from pop music, TV, film, books and newspapers, Paul Bowman clearly unpicks the ideas of deconstruction. This book shows all students of Cultural Studies how to use deconstruction to read and make sense of culture today.
