Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Davis and Owen have addressed the newest, most volatile variable in our understanding of American politics—the role of the so-called new media. That the role is major is unarguable; that Davis and Owen have provided important and valuable insights into its impact is equally unarguable."—Marvin Kalb, Director of the Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard

"Davis and Owen have written a fascinating book that helps us all understand the 'new media' that are redefining the way we learn about our world. This volume is tailor-made for both undergraduate and graduate courses on the media, as well as a broader audience. It fills a huge gap in the literature on a subject that becomes more compelling with each passing day."—Larry J. Sabato, Department of Government and Foreign Affairs, University of Virginia

"This book helps political communication scholars and students become current with rapid changes in political media. It is well-written and documented."—Kenneth L. Hacker, New Mexico State University
