Editorial Reviews

A Quarterly Review of Communication Research
"The approach taken in many chapters provides readers with a summary of philosophical perspectives relevant to the topic, contemporary examples from print or broadcast news media, but also relevant references from literature or film; for example, including lines from Hamlet or the film Network. Given the international diversity of examples, her text would be highly appropriate for a course with a global communication perspective. "— Joan Conners
