This up-to-date, thoughtful, and reader-friendly presentation of the mass media, media messages, and media issues "uses the media to teach the media." Widely praised for its ability to make learning interesting, Vivian excites readers as they explore the ever-changing subject of mass communication. The book retains its emphasis on the challenges of media while building on its extensive coverage of media history, effects, and culture. Every chapter reflects the most current statistics, issues, and challenges facing the media today. For mass communication students and enthusiasts.
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.
