Product description


Media, Society, World is comprehensive and current in its coverage--of research, of real-world examples, and larger pressing questions about new media. The book is empirically and theoretically informed, and surveys both the academic research and historical developments in media in a single work.  It is Castells-like in its range and ambition.
John Durham Peters, University of Iowa

Media keep reframing , de-centring and dis-intermediating one another . A shrinking  world offers the startling  experience  of radically new contiguities .   « Society » is no longer the ultimate explanation once saught by   Durkheim.   
Couldry’s  portrayal of this   unsteady constellation offers  a much needed counterpart to   the short lived enthusiasms of technophilic sycophants .  
 Anchored in  social  theory , combining  the  ethnographic sensitivity of a Morley  and the  ethical intensity of a  Silverstone , Couldry ‘s book  invites us to confront  a basic ,crucial, question . What is it that the media –old and new – allow us to do to each other  ? What should they permit us to do for each other?
Daniel Dayan, Institut d'Etudes Politiques, Paris  

In this richly insightful, incisive and thoroughly engaging book, Nick Couldry’s original synthesis of social theory, media analysis and subtle observation invites a radical rethink of what it means to live in a media-saturated world.
Sonia Livingstone, London School of Economics and Political Science
