Abstract or Description

Over the past 15 years, Mass Media and Society has established itself as a leading international textbook on the media. Written by distinguished academics from around the world, the book provides an invaluable guided tour through three key areas of debate:

theories of media and society

the study of media organisations

debates about culture, ideology and democracy.

The fourth edition has been fully updated and contains 13 new chapters on key topics, ranging from post-feminism to war journalism as entertainment. Above all, it offers a number of alternative views on the changing role of the media in the era of globalisation, new communication technology, the 'war on terror', the advance of women and increasing economic inequality
