The first edition of Mass Media and Society rapidly established itself as required reading for many first year media studies courses around the world. It brought together an unrivaled team of international scholars who offered a survey of the field which was both up-to-date, stimulating, and immensely useful for students. In this new edition existing articles have been thoroughly updated and a number of new articles have been commissioned, including Simon Frith on the entertainment industry, Christine Geraghty on popular culture and resistance, Janet Wasko on the sociology of Disney, and Daniel Hallin on the American media system and the marketplace place.
