Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'A timely collection of essays by some of the most authoritative researchers and scholars in the field of political communication. The essays combine rigorous research on everything from advertising to reality TV, game shows and social networking with lively and accessible writing, and will be essential reading for students of political communication all over the world.'

- Brian McNair, Professor of Journalism & Communication, University of Strathclyde, UK

'The [book]is relevant and well written, and definitely has the potential to appeal to people who are not familiar with the study of political communication. The authors use popular examples to explain their points, which works to great effect ... While it will undoubtedly be useful for scholars of politics and political communication, it is also recommended to anyone interested in the intricate relationships between politics, media, and citizens.'

- Ashley Mog, LSE blog

'The book offers much that is thought-provoking for students and scholars of political communication, providing new perspectives on long-standing debates.'

- Darren G Lilleker, European Journal of Communication
