Media literacy is a topic of increasing interest, especially to educators. Despite that interest, there has been no single book that brings together the scattered work on media literacy, one that looks at, in Potter's words, "what we know as well as what can be done with what we know." Potter is a high-profile name in this field. His text Media Literacy has further established his reputation as an expert on this topic.
