9780198742241: Emancipation, the Media, and Modernity: Arguments about the Media and Social Theory

This book adopts a polemical stance. It approaches the problems raised by the media by way of a set of arguments with the two dominant paradigms now current for thinking about the media: post-modernism and Information Society theory. It argues that the media are important because they raise a set of questions that have been central to social and political theory since the Enlightenment.

About the Author:

Nicholas Garnham is Professor of Media Studies, University of Westminster

Review:

`Nicholas Garnham's new book is about moral philosophy, social theory and media analysis. Often these subjects are held to be separate. For Garnham, they are inseparable. This is certainly a major strength of this work, his work in general, and it should be emulated. To hold these subjects
together in the face of increasing specialization in universities is a difficult task but one that Garnham achieves through his ability to proceed quickly, and with clarity, to what is essential in an argument. He is at home in all three subjects.'
John Downey, European Journal of Communication 16 (1)

`This is a very important book. It marks one of those very few occasions when a British academic publishes a book stepping straight through the boundaries of subject areas that mark off your little garden from mine in order to walk with a proper freedom and insouciance across the spaces of
the great agora and the public forum.'
Nicholas Garnham, THES, 3rd Nov. 2000.

`This is the first book to start from a recognition of the new kind of polity that has developed out of the past 40 years or so in which politics and the public media are mutually embedded and government impossible without the complementary of both.'
Nicholas Garnham, THES, 3rd Nov. 2000.
