Researching Communications, Second Edition provides a practical, authoritative, step-by-step guide to media and communications studies students taking courses in communications research. The authors also examine the complementary nature of qualitative and quantitative research methods, and aim to show how these techniques hold up in practice. The new edition also incorporates new information on using archives and computers as well as the use of the internet as a resource for research. 'This is an enormously useful text for anyone interested in an up-to-date guide to cultural analysis; it will be indispensible for teaching research methods in communication studies.' - Hanno Hardt, University of Iowa
