Mass Media and Society

by Michael Gurevitch (Editor), JamesCurran (Editor)


This book succeeds "Mass Communication and Society". Written by a group of international scholars, this new volume reviews the many and far-reaching developments that have since taken place in mass communication research. Its three sections provide: an account of the role of the media in contemporary society, using liberal, postmodernism, feminist and neo-marxist perspectives; alternative views of the formative influences shaping the media, plus analyses of recent changes in the media industries and an exploration of the role of the media in the social production of meaning.
