The Routledge Handbook of Magazine Research
Edited by David Abrahamson and Marcia R. Prior-Miller

"This comprehensive, 33-chapter compendium of essays is bursting with theoretical insights and analysis, all underpinned by a clear understanding of the practicalities of magazine-making. Synthesizing research in a diverse range of areas including design, literary journalism, editorial practices, religious magazines, globalization, and curricular perspectives, Abrahamson and Prior-Miller's volume is likely to be regarded as the seminal text on the subject for many years to come." - Richard Lance Keeble, University of Lincoln, UK
