This study of Williams provides the most detailed account available of the sociological dimensions of his project. While including an overview of central themes throughout his work, in particular it unlocks his late sociology of culture. Previously overlooked aspects of Williams's work are thus highlighted. These include: his critique of Birmingham cultural studies; his use of an Adorno-like approach to 'cultural production'; his 'social formalist' alternative to structuralism and post-structuralism and his later approach to 'the media'.
