Overview

This book closely examines the relationship between media and people in critical areas such as global news, media studies, election races, conflicts and crises and media industries. The author links these areas with education, business, labour and the military and provides readers with an insider's view of the people who work for the media.

An important theme is the trend in communications towards convergence of all media into a single electronically-based, computer-driven system. The book also includes essays on economic issues and war news which integrate many of the themes introduced earlier.
