Product description


?Two gifted media scholars, Brian L. Ott and Robert L. Mack, here explore the role of new and developing media in personal, social, and cultural development. They provide clear and workable explanations of terms that are often taken for granted, such as new media or postmodernity. This is an invaluable book for student and professional alike. It helps the reader not only to understand media but to take an active role in critiquing it so as to understand what it does.? ? Barry Brummett, University of Texas at Austin, USA ?Critical Media Studies is both theoretically sophisticated and accessible. With examples that span the full spectrum of contemporary media, the text is sure to engage students while also challenging them to think through the complexities of media and its impact on us.? ? Lisa A. Flores, University of Colorado-Boulder, USA

From the Back Cover

Fully revised to reflect today’s media environment, this new edition of Critical Media Studies offers students a comprehensive introduction to the field and demonstrates how to think critically about the power and influence of media in our daily lives. Material new to this edition includes a chapter on sociological analysis and reveals new ways audiences use media in their everyday lives to manage social roles, relationships, and contexts. Readers will also appreciate the extensive updating of previously discussed examples to reflect contemporary industry standards, textual forms, and audience behaviors and the inclusion of more international material to reflect contemporary media’s global reach.

Continuing its well-received writing style that is both engaging and accessible, the book’s twelve perspectives provide readers with a diverse array of critical approaches to media studies, including original approaches such as erotic, sociological, and ecological analysis. Combining the best of well-tested theory with cutting-edge scholarship, this new edition of Critical Media Studies, offers invaluable insights into our current understanding of the nature and consequences of media in today’s world.

Updated and enhanced online resources for instructors – including PowerPoint slides, test bank, study guides, and sample assignments – can be found at www.wiley.com/go/criticalmediastudies.
