Media, Technology and Society by Brian Winston

Book Description

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.

Act of Documenting by Brian Winston Act of Documenting, Hardback (January 2017)

A critical review of documentary in the 21st century.

Rushdie Fatwa and After by Brian Winston Rushdie Fatwa and After, Hardback (June 2014)

This resounding defence of the principles of free expression revisits the Satanic Verses uproar of 1989, as well as subsequent incidents such as the Danish cartoons controversy, to argue that the human right of free speech is by no means so secure that it can be taken for granted.
