Publishers Description: "This book introduces social science students to the world of media, and media students to the world of politics, power and control. Students of the social sciences are introduced to a wide range of contemporary theories about media production, representation and audiences. Difficult concepts drawn from semiotics and cultural studies in general are explained clearly and their relevance to the world of public affairs is carefully described." "Politics of the Media is also ideal for media students as it explains the political importance of mass media in contemporary Western societies, and takes the reader through the web of processes and networks in the political world where control and exercise of media power can have a dramatic effect." "Most chapters are illustrated with images from either broadcast or print media. Each chapter concludes with a summary and discussion questions."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
