Media and Power is a series that publishes work uniting media studies with studies of power.
This innovative and original series features books that challenge, even transcend, conventional disciplinary boundaries, construing both media and power in the broadest possible terms. At the same time, books in the series are designed to fit into several different types of college courses in political science, public policy, communication, journalism, media, history, film, sociology, anthropology, and cultural studies.
Intended for the scholarly, text, and trade markets, the series should attract authors and inspire and provoke readers.
