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.

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.

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.

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.

HASH(0x8ee0fbdc) out of 5 stars A thorough and readable analysis of the British media 8 Mar. 1999
By jon.mountague@bbc.co.uk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book contains a thorough insight into the history of the British press and broadcasting. It's historical review examines the interplay between successive British Governments and the emergence of a free press and broadcasting. It goes on to assess the consequences for the 'new' media in Britain; satellite and cable. Key themes include the BBC, as the world's first 'public service broadcaster' - a unique institution which has suffered many trials at the hands of the Government, in particular, during the '80s administration of Margerat Thatcher. I achieved a degree under the tutoring of the book's co-author Jean Seaton and am now successfully employed at the BBC. A fantastic, level headed critique which renders an enormous topic palatable.
