Product Description

Review

Like its subject, The Media in Scotland is sprawling, erudite, and opinionated: a lucky-bag of history, statistics, insider opinion, and social analysis of the original 'pinning jelly to a wall' phenomenon. A useful toolbox for the public servant, and fun to read. -- Christopher Harvie, MSP Telling it like we see it - a unique and invaluable resource. -- Professor David McCrone, University of Edinburgh A well-signposted and accessible collection of essays complete with select bibliography and comprehensive index. -- Tim Luckhurst Times Higher Education Supplement The book brings together a broad range of expertise! and overall is a very useful collection, filling a gap that has been evident now for quite some time. Neil Blain and David Hutchison are to be congratulated on assembling such a rich array of contributions and producing such an enjoyable, wide-ranging overview of the media north of the border. European Journal of Communication Individually, the chapters provide an informed and interesting account of media histories, representations and institutions. Taken together, the volume charts crucial differences and illuminating comparisons in media practices, audiences and regulation... The scope of the volume is also its greatest strength, ensuring that the work makes for a lively, accessible and often humorous narrative. The book sets out to engage a wide variety of readers and is likely to do just that. -- Lynne Hibberd, University of Glasgow Media, Culture and Society A very welcome addition to the literature on the Scottish Media... The book is of importance to all who study the Scottish media, whether teachers at any level or just people with an interest in Scottish culture. Despite parts of it dating rapidly, there is plenty which will provide a source of references for many years to come. -- Robert Preece Media Education Journal The book successfully manages to highlight the challenges faced by all historical communities that lack a consolidated communicative space of their own. Such communities are in dire need of publications like this, in which academic thinking displaces the perspective of the mass media. -- Carme Ferre Pavia, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona Catalan Journal of Communication and Cultural Studies Like its subject, The Media in Scotland is sprawling, erudite, and opinionated: a lucky-bag of history, statistics, insider opinion, and social analysis of the original 'pinning jelly to a wall' phenomenon.
