Editorial Reviews

Art:Design:Media (Higher Education Academy Liam French

The key strengths of this book are built on clear explanations of the relationship of theory to research, the strong emphasis placed on practical application (the 'how to') of the methods and techniques discussed and the guidance given in relation to the stages of the research process.
Hanno Hardt

This is an enormously useful text for anyone interested in an up-to-date guide to cultural analysis; it will be indispensible for teaching research methods in communication studies.
