Excerpt

I would like to acknowledge the help and support given to me by a number of people, without whom this book would not have been written-although that does not mean that any of them are to blame for the inadequacies of the final product. First, I must thank the IBA, and Bob Towler in particular, for funding my research when no other agency was prepared to do so. I must also thank Philip Corrigan, with whom a number of the initial ideas were formulated; Richard Paterson, Valerie Walkerdine and Charlotte Brunsdon, all of whom offered valuable comments and criticisms of earlier drafts; and Stuart Hall, whose encouragement has always been invaluable. I must also thank everyone at Comedia for their support during the very long period of gestation of this book, but especially Sue Field Reid, who has retyped it so often that she could probably recite large chunks of it in her sleep. Finally, my thanks must also go to the families who cooperated with me in the research.
