This book discusses the effects of mass media and their influence on various types of political relationships and functions. It provides case studies of incidents of media impact on British politics. Colin Seymour-Ure seeks to establish a framework that could be used to explore the impact of mass media. According to Seymour-Ure, readers need to move away from looking at impact and effects in a simplistic way so that we are more aware of the many ways mass media changes the nature of the political system and of political communication. The examples given range in analyses of the relationship between press systems and party systems, a survey of the impact of the media on British elections and electioneering since 1945, and studies of the mass media and Enoch Powell, the political role of Private Eye, and the role of The Times in the appeasement of Hitler, and the mutual influence of broadcasting and parliament. Written in a clear, readable way, this book would be of great value to political science and sociology students, teachers, journalists, politicians and all those interested in mass media.
