Review:

'Truly excellent! A veritable one-stop shop for those studying A Level Media Studies. Up to date, informative and user-friendly.' – Jo Wilcock, Senior Examiner AQA VCE Media and Communication

'Explanations of the media concepts, cultural terms and theoretical perspectives are clear, concise, well illustrated and accessible to all ... the notebook sections offer deeper insights ... and the stimulus to engage in more depth with media theories and debates ... The section on Media Institutions is the best I've seen.' – Julia Burton, Principal Examiner for Two AQA GCE Media Units

'An ideal coursebook for students and an invaluable planning tool for teachers.' – Les Grafton, A Level Teacher, AQA Subject Advisory Committee

'The book's coverage of the key concepts are simple and easy to read; the liberal and colourful images illustrate the examples effectively and serve to provide an introduction to the basic theories. The engaging layout, quotes and activities all serve to make interesting stimulus material.' – Media Education Association Newsletter
