This fourth edition of Communication, Cultural and Media Studies: The Key Concepts is an indispensible guide to the most important terms in the field. It offers clear explanations of the key concepts, exploring their origins, what they’re used for and why they provoke discussion. The author provides a multi-disciplinary explanation and assessment of the key concepts, from ‘authorship’ to ‘censorship’; ‘creative industries’ to ‘network theory’; ‘complexity’ to ‘visual culture’.
Hartley is no chump; he’s a wry guide and a puckish professor, embodying the young-old spirit of the discipline he has inhabited and informed for decades - Will Brooker, Times Education Supplement
