About the Book

Channels of Discourse fills a significant gap in the critical literature on television. The eight distinguished scholars whose essays make up the collection consider commercial televisionin relation to the major strands of contemporary literary, cultural and cinematic criticism.


`A remarkably cogent and comprehensive introduction to a wide range of methodologies of television analysis. Channels of Discourse goes far beyond what usually passes for `content analysis' and `television criticism'.' - Robert Stam, New York University
