From the Back Cover:


This book offers the following features:

  • Includes four new theories (ch. 15, Information Utility Theory; ch.17, Social Expectations Theory; ch.20, Creeping Cycle of Desensitization; ch.23, Collateral Instruction Theory) developed specifically for this book  to provide readers with a more complete understanding of the processes and effects of contemporary mass media influences.
  • Explores the historical and cultural events that shaped each theory, adding to our continued accumulation of knowledge and understanding of ways that mass communication plays a part in shaping both individual behavior and the features of our constantly changing society.
  • Clear, jargon-free writing make the basic concepts behind the theories accessible to readers
  • “Formalization” of theories, founded at the end of each chapter, provides clarity and moves mass communication theories into the realm of traditional scientific fields
