It will immensely benefit students, teachers, mass communicators, theoreticians and practitioners, theoreticians and practitioners alike. Something usable today, a ready reckoner for years to come and a collector s items for all times. A must read endurable and preservable.

The media is at the heart of cultural, social, political and economic events throughout the world. But how is the role and influence of mass media evolving? Who controls what the media tell us? What impact is new technology on the media as we know it? Building on the success of previous editions, Media Communication 3e continues to explore the changing media climate of the 21st Century. With each chapter showing how theory can be related to our everyday experience of the media, the book makes the most complex ideas easy to understand. All the key topics for first year study are introduced and broken down into manageable chunks, as the book examines the role, ownership and constraints of media production, explaining essential terminology along the way. Packed with memorable examples from international media coverage of world affairs, this new edition explores important contemporary topics from public service broadcasting and network communication to web 2.0 and citizen journalism. With helpful features, including an extensive glossary, further reading and suggestions for discussion, this third edition provides an essential resource for all those studying media and communication.

The articles included in this twelfth edition of Annual Editions: Mass Media reflect three issues of concern at the beginning of the new millennium. 1) The extent to which the U.S. government and legal system should rightfully be involved in regulating either media messengers or media messages. 2) The ongoing debate over how news is selected and packaged, ethical practice, and coverage of war and terrorism. 3) A heightened awareness of a media landscape profoundly altered by corporate mergers and technological change.

The Encyclopedia of Communication Theory provides students and researchers with a comprehensive two-volume overview of contemporary communication theory. Reference librarians report that students frequently approach them seeking a source that will provide them with a quick overview of a particular theory or theorist - just enough to help them grasp the general concept or theory and its relation to the discipline as a whole. Communication scholars and teachers also occasionally need a quick reference for theories. Edited by the co-authors of the best-selling textbook on communication theory and drawing on the expertise of an advisory board of 10 international scholars and nearly 200 contributors from 10 countries, this work finally provides such a resource. More than 300 entries address topics related not only to paradigms, traditions, and schools, but also metatheory, methodology, inquiry, and applications and contexts. Entries cover several orientations, including psycho-cognitive; social-interactional; cybernetic and systems; cultural; critical; feminist; philosophical; rhetorical; semiotic, linguistic, and discursive; and non-Western. Concepts relate to interpersonal communication, groups and organizations, and media and mass communication. In sum, this encyclopedia offers the student of communication a sense of the history, development, and current status of the discipline, with an emphasis on the theories that comprise it.

From its first edition the purpose of Walford has been to identify and evaluate the widest possible range of reference materials. No rigid definition of reference is applied. In addition to the expected bibliographies, indexes, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, and directories, a number of important textbooks and manuals of general practice are included. While the majority of the items are books, Walford is a guide to reference material. Thus periodical articles, microforms, online and CD-ROM sources are all represented. In this volume a particular effort has been made to improve coverage of the latter two categories.
