Updated in its eleventh edition, The Media of Mass Communication engages readers in the pursuit of greater media literacy and provides accessible insight into the important issues that confront students as consumers and purveyors of mass media. Through exceptional coverage of contemporary media issues and trends, including the on-going transformations in mass media, this text balances the principles and foundations of media literacy with lively examples, streamlined coverage, and a robust media package.
This edition of Vivian's introductory text (which was first published in 1991) includes the password to a supplemental Web site. To the book-oriented it may seem like a marketing gimmick, but the site does provide access to resources not listed in the printed text, such as links to relevant professional organizations and information about media-related careers. The text surveys topics including the overall pervasiveness of the mass media, books, magazines, newspapers, records, movies, radio, television, the Web, journalism, public relations, advertising, and issues such as ethics, law, and media's impact on society.
