from back cover:

This volume brings together major statements by the leading contemporary scholars of cultural analysis. Part 1 surveys the range of current analytical debate over culture. Focusing on the reciprocal relationship between symbolic code and social structure, the contributors bring abstract theories down to earth in a series of readable case studies. Neo-classical examples of Weberian, Durkheimian, and Marxian analysis are included, as are prototypes of functionalist, semiotic, and post-structuralist analysis. While the contributors differ sharply in their understanding of the culture/society relation, the articles in Part 1 exhibit an underlying consensus about the relative autonomy of culture and the centrality of symbolic analysis.
Part II then turns to substantive debates, including those over the role of religion, secular ideology, and mass culture, and brings to light disputes about the meaning of modernity...
