It may seem obvious, but if you are going to attempt to condense an entire subject into one volume, you'd better be the kind of person that writes in an accessible but intelligent way about it.happily this book manages to be both accessible and intelligently written...Perhaps the most impressive thing about the book is that its structure reflects the difficulties of studying the media in the 21st century...the author is to be applauded for writing a book that acepts that in a world where the media has recently undergone some seismic shofts, media studies probably needs to undergo some too.
