Review:

Media Theories and Approaches offers an exceptionally clear, well-balanced and up to date synthesis of theory and evidence in media studies. Satisfyingly global and historical in approach, its stimulating, comparative perspective will be greatly welcomed by teachers and students alike.' - Sonia Livingstone, Professor of Media and Communication, London School of Economics and Political Science

'I have been seeking a high-quality media studies textbook that I can recommend to my students for a long time. Finally, it's available! This volume will set the standard for everyone else thanks to its comprehensive coverage, clear exposition, and sincere internationalism.' - Toby Miller, Chair of Media& Cultural Studies, University of California, Riverside

'Genuinely international in outlook and presentation, the strength of Media Theories and Approaches lies in its wonderful combination of broad methodological coverage and telling example. Students and teachers are presented with a thorough introduction to the various media forms and a compelling education in the historically changing evolution of media in the Americas, Europe, East and South Asia and Australasia.' – Tom O'Regan, Professor of Media and Cultural Studies, University of Queensland
