Media and Democracy addresses key topics and themes in relation to democratic theory, media and technology, comparative media studies, media and history, and the evolution of media research. For example:

  • How does TV entertainment contribute to the democratic life of society?
  • Why are Americans less informed about politics and international affairs than Europeans?
  • How should new communications technology and globalisation change our understanding of the democratic role of the media?
  • What does the rise of international ezines reveal about the limits of the internet?
  • What is the future of journalism?
  • Does advertising influence the media?
  • Is American media independence from government a myth?
  • How have the media influenced the development of modern society?

Professor Curran’s response to these questions provides both a clear introduction to media research, written for university undergraduates studying in different countries, and an innovative analysis written by one of the field’s leading scholars.
