Communication and Media Studies (General)
The Handbook offers a comprehensive review of today's burgeoning field of media studies within five interconnected areas: humanistic and social scientific approaches; global and comparative perspectives; the relation of media to economy and power; media users; and elements in the media mosaic ranging from popular music to digital technologies, from media ethics to advertising, and from Hollywood and Bollywood to alternative media.
It is an ideal resource for graduate courses in media studies, as well as an excellent addition to any academic library.
