A comprehensive introduction for students of media studies, this third edition of The Media Student's Book has been thoroughly revised and updated in response to feedback from lecturers using the second edition, and now focuses on the higher education syllabus more than ever before.

It covers all the key topics encountered at undergraduate level and provides a detailed and clear guide to concepts and debates. Key features include:

* think points and discussion points to get students really engaging with the topics
* lists of useful web sites, resource centres and suggestions for further reading to encourage additional study
* follow-up activities and essay questions which can be used to set tutorial work
*marginal terms, definitions and cross references to provide clear explanations of key concepts and complex theories
* case studies throughout taken from advertising, films, radio, television, newspapers, magazines, photography and the Internet to ensure students are exposed to a rich range of media forms.

Including a glossary of key terms for quick reference and revision, this third edition will be used by lecturers as a flexible teaching resource and by students to aid independent study.
