Product Description


"The 300 pages of this book are packed with information oninternational developmentsin palliative care." - Community Care "This book is a must for all those working in the field, an interesting read for others working across the spectrum of health careand core reading for students from a wide range of disciplines studying health policy, sociologyand health care delivery, as we move into the 21st century." - Information Exchange "In terms of student suitability, I would recommend the text for two main reasons. First, it is rich in detail and analysis of developments in palliative care...Second, it allows the students to see how social science based ideas and concepts can be applied to the 'real world'...In overall terms, this text should be a valuable resource for social scientists and practitioners alike. It's bias is towards the latter audience, but I would still urge social science students and researchers interested in death and dying to look at what, I believe, is a very informativeand reasonably priced little book." - Medical Sociology News --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
An excellent resource for media students. This book covers most aspects of the news, detailing the emergence of journalism, and constructively debates issues of 'truth' and 'objectivity' within the news medium. Also discussed are topics such as news values, news structures and frameworks, and issues of gender and race. Stuart Allan's insightful knowledge and views of 'news culture', ensures this text to be essential reading material for those studying in this field.

Everything you want to know about news - in cultural studies 5 Nov. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
My professor gave me this book in my graduate cultural studies class. I am very grateful for his choice. I enjoyed reading the book very much, from beginning to the end.
Allan tells you about the birth of the 'news industry', talks about the making and cultural politics of the news discourse, explains you how audience receive it, and discusses such very actual topics as gendered realities of journalism, and the racism in the news.
Even if you are critical concerning the news, after Allan's book you'll never watch news the same way as before. You'll start to think about things like 'why did they pictured this event this way?' or 'how do I interpret it?' or 'what can be the reality?'.
I recommend the book to everyone who is interested in cultural studies, and would like to know more about something we watch and read day by day - the news...
