Book Description

This new title in the Routledge Major Works series, Critical Concepts in Media and Cultural Studies, meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of a rapidly growing and ever more complex corpus of literature, and to provide a map of the area as it has emerged and developed. It is a collection of foundational and the best cutting-edge scholarship in the field.

Radio is fully indexed and has a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context. It is an essential work of reference and is destined to be valued by scholars and students of media and cultural studies, as well as those engaged in more specialized radio courses, as a vital one-stop research resource.
