The Media and Communications in Australia
More than ever, the media dominate public life and shape public perceptions.
At the same time, the rise of digital technologies means that demarcations
between different forms of media are fading. Radio can be heard on an iPod,
data accompanies television programs, and news snippets are available on
The Media and Communications in Australia offers a systematic introduction
to this dynamic and often bewildering field. Fully updated and revised to take
account of recent developments, this second edition outlines the key media
industries and explains how communications technologies are impacting on
them. It provides a thorough overview of the main approaches taken in studying
the media, and examines the thorny issues of media ethics, youth media, the
media’s role in celebrity culture and the future of public broadcasting.
With contributions from some of Australia’s best researchers and teachers in
the field, The Media and Communications in Australia is the most comprehensive
and reliable introduction to media and communications available. It is an ideal
student text, and a reference for teachers of media and anyone interested in
this influential industry.
