Book Description

17 July 2003 0415243904 978-0415243902 6
Widely regarded as the standard book on the British Media, this authoritative introduction to the history, sociology, theory and politics of media and communications studies has been substantially revised and updated to bring it up to date with developments in the media industry. Its three new chapters describe the battle for the soul of the internet, the impact of the internet on society and the rise of new media in Britain. In addition it examines the recuperation of the BBC, how international and European regulation is changing the British media and why Britain has the least trusted press in Europe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power Without Responsibility: Curran & Seaton 27 Jan 2005
By clauds
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was extremely authoritative, informative, and an excellent buy. The text covers all of the key areas of the media, with historical analysis, and current issues extensievly covered, with comprehensive analysis. It discussed the history, sociology, theory and politics of the media and is written in an engaging and fluid style. This book was definately one of my best buys for my Media Law course, and I would also recommend it to anyone with an interest in learning more about the Media.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 11 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I needed this book for university and the book arrived in great condition. The book is a heavy read but at the same time, it is very interesting. So if you need this for education, or just want to learn about the history of Britain's press industry, this is a great purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars James Curran, the man. 27 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
To give you a sense of the man behind this piece, James Curran is a an endearing, old school acedemic rumoured to have been unable to work at University until his desk from home was brought to him. He often gives lectures whilst in slippers. He is one of the only professors who really care to teach first year students. This book is superbly written, is witty and a radical as he.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Journo students! 2 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Are you a journalism student? If so, then this is the book for you. It gives a history of the British press and discusses the sociological issues surrounding journalism today. Both interesting and informative, it's ideal.
