This text offers a clear and succinct overview of a central debate in the study of the media, drawing together a wide range of theoretical and research-based material from both sides of the Atlantic. Written with a light touch and taking a level-headed approach to competing theories and claims, it is accessibly organised around the three central processes in mass communication - production, representation and reception - and provides comprehensive coverage of all the main topics relevant to the thorny issue of media power.
