Media Technology And Society

RRP $503.99

Challenging the popular myth of a present-day 'information revolution', Media Technology and Society is essential reading for anyone interested in the social impact of technological change. Winston argues that the development of new media forms, from the telegraph and the telephone to computers, satellite and virtual reality, is the product of a constant play-off between social necessity and suppression: the unwritten law by which new technologies are introduced into society only insofar as their disruptive potential is limited.

Media Today

RRP $393.99

"Turow's Media Today: Mass Communication in a Converging World, now in its fifth edition, chooses [a] cutting-edge option. This is a student-friendly publication, offering aids such as definitions of key terms, colourful infographics, case studies and end-of-chapter review questions. There's a companion website, too, and a password-protected website for instructors."-Philip Kemp, Times Higher Education

Media Today uses convergence as a lens that puts students at the center of the profound changes in the 21st century media world. Through the convergence lens they learn to think critically about the role of media today and what these changes mean for their lives presently and in the future. The book's media systems approach helps students to look carefully at how media is created, distributed, and exhibited in the new world that the digital revolution has created. In this way,Media Today goes beyond the traditional mass communication textbook's focus on consuming media, to give students an insider's perspective on how media businesses operate. How exactly does Google profit from web searches? What will a magazine look like five years from now?

Informative and engaging, Media Today, Fifth Edition, is characterized by its focus on:

  • Convergence: In addition to separate chapters on the Internet and the Video Games industry, coverage of convergence and its impact is incorporated into every chapter.

  • Consumer Education: Media Literacy questions ask students to consider their roles as a media consumer and potential media creator.

  • Comprehensive Media Industry Coverage: Historical timelines in the print book and on the companion website track the development of each media industry, giving students an overview of a particular industry at a glance.

  • Contemporary, Student-friendly Examples: New culture and media boxes help students think about the impact of media industries on their own lives and globally.

Joseph Turow-who has been teaching Intro to Mass Communication for well over a decade-demonstrates the many ways that media convergence and the pervasiveness of the Internet have blurred distinctions between and among various media. From newspapers to video games or social networking to mobile platforms, Media Today prepares students to live in the digital world of media.


Life After... Social Studies

Global Media

RRP $341.99

The authors take as their starting point the assumption that media can only be analyzed in the context of the political, economic, cultural and technological conjunctures in which they develop, are produced, distributed and consumed. Therefore the focus of this book is on ownership, regulation, production, distribution and consumption of different electronic media - radio, television, film, the Internet - at the global level, including the various sub-levels - transnational, cultural-linguistic, regional, national and local - which constitute the global.

The critical textbook:

  • develops a new theory of media globalization
  • investigates the often very different paths and degrees of globalization of the four main extant forms of electronic mass media - film, radio, television and the Internet
  • analyzes how media globalization plays out in the BRIC countries - Brazil, Russia, India and China - to assess local, national and regional characteristics of media globalization within the broader theoretical and political economic, cultural and technological contexts introduced in parts I to III of the book.

While the authors believe that on one level the dominance of the global media system embedded in the power of Hollywood, and the US military, industrial entertainment complex must be recognized as a reality today, they also see that a multi-polar world is developing and that more attention must be played to developing countries if the emerging trajectory in media globalization is to be recognized, tracked and understood. Thus this text pays special attention to the BRIC countries because, despite a great deal of economic analysis of their potential to change or perhaps even dominate the future global media landscape, little has been written about them as a group in media studies.

Aimed at upper level undergraduate and beginning postgraduate students, this text will offer a sophisticated, wide ranging introduction to global media in the twenty first century.
