9780340913383: Dictionary of Media and Communication Studies (A Hodder Arnold Publication)

This updated edition of a staple reference book in the field of communication contains more than 50 new entries and substantial updates in areas such as intercultural communication, public relations and marketing communications.  With recent events, such as the "war on terror" and the military occupation of Iraq, new issues have been raised concerning the gathering and presentation of news.  Journalism in traditional media and new media have been on unsure ground in reporting news, handling censorship and responding to intense public criticism. The transmission of information itself has exploded with broadband and wireless access by computers and phones and, with it, the ability of the public to become participants in the news gathering business. With constant pressure to both apply legislation to the media and uphold hard-won liberties, this volume chronicles major battles, milestones and terminology such as RIPA, PSYOPS, SLAPPS and the Hutton Report on the BBC and reminds all citizens of the vital need to be media literate by developing a better understanding of the contexts in which interpersonal, group, national, and international communication take place.
 The Updated Seventh Edition includes:
* More on European and US media and on globalization
* More coverage of war and representation
* Includes a list of useful websites
* Greatly increased coverage of new media
* More detail about Marketing and PR
* Updated chronology section
