Marketing Literature examines the conditions of, contexts for, and some key instances of, the publishing of contemporary writing in Britain.

This innovative study of recent publishing history includes case studies of novels including Trainspotting, Bridget Jones's Diary, Captain Corelli's Mandolin, The God of Small Things and the His Dark Materials trilogy.

In this wide-ranging critical study of poststructuralism's legacy to contemporary cultural studies, Mark Hansen challenges the hegemony of this model, contending that technologies fundamentally alter our sensory experience and drastically affect what it means to live as embodied human agents.
