However, the culture study aimed to working class culture and popular culture should owe to the three founders of contemporary culture study: Raymond Williams, Richard Hoggart and E. P. Thompson. A series of classic works they finished during the Fifty and Sixty were the most famous volumes in the field of culture study in that period and influenced the realm deeply .As one of the three ,Thompson played his unchangeable and unique role.
