Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"We have Holt and Perren's superb book to help us move forward. Media Industries will be of great interest to students and scholars considering an industrial turn in their research. The book can be successfully integrated into existing undergraduate and graduate film and television classes. It can also be taught as the centerpiece of a course we will hopefully see cropping up more and more: media industry studies."(Television & New Media, March 2010)
