In this book, British cultural and literary critic Raymond Williams traces the history and evolution of important terms that have been used to aid our understanding of society, making a sociology of language of its own kind. Including words that cultural practitioners have always deployed, including arts, development, culture, violence, and tracing their sociological associations and interactions within culture, this publication serves as a guide to in-depth analysis to individual words in cultural studies and to the society in which we live.
