Book Description

26 Feb 2010 0340984457 978-0340984451 Fifth Edition

Mass Media and Society is an established title, popular with students world-wide for its ability to provide insightful and accessible essays from leading international academics on the most pertinent issues in the media field today.

The book groups the essays into three key areas of debate: media and society; media systems, organizations and culture, and media representations, mediations and influence.

This fifth edition contains thirteen stimulating new essays on: the relationship between film and society; media and the public sphere; media and feminism; political communication studies; the rise of radical Hollywood; the impact of new media technology; gender equality in cyberspace; how the internet is changing Korean society, and the significance of the TV series, Sex and the City. Seven classic texts have been revised by their authors to include current developments. These focus on: globalisation and national media systems, how the internet is changing the world, communications and political economy, the sociology of news production, the production of entertainment, the three western models of media systems, a survey of audience research, and media and civil culture. Also new to this edition is an emphasis on film studies - an increasingly popular and important area of media studies.

Mass Media and Society is an essential resource for all media, communication and film studies students who want to broaden their knowledge and understanding of how the media operates and affects societies across the globe.
