Sage Handbook of Media Studies by John D. H. Downing

Book Description

The SAGE Handbook of Media Studies provides a state-of-the-art overview of media research and examines the theories, practices, and future of media studies. The Editors have brought together a variety of U.S. and international contributors to provide a universal viewpoint of the increasingly diverse and globalized media studies field. 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.
