The Uses of Literacy by Richard Hoggart

"The Uses of Literacy" is a sociological study that explores the impact of mass media and popular culture on traditional working-class values and communities in Britain during the mid-20th century. The author combines personal memoir with scholarly analysis to examine how the spread of American consumer culture and the rise of mass media have influenced British society, especially among the working class. The book serves as a critique of the commercialization of culture and the erosion of authentic, local cultures and traditions.
