What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

“Two gifted media scholars, Brian L. Ott and Robert L. Mack, here explore the role of new and developing media in personal, social, and cultural development. They provide clear and workable explanations of terms that are often taken for granted, such as new media or postmodernity. This is an invaluable book for student and professional alike. It helps the reader not only to understand media but to take an active role in critiquing it so as to understand what it does.” — Barry Brummett, University of Texas at Austin, USA

Critical Media Studies is both theoretically sophisticated and accessible. With examples that span the full spectrum of contemporary media, the text is sure to engage students while also challenging them to think through the complexities of media and its impact on us.” — Lisa A. Flores, University of Colorado-Boulder, USA
