9780415537339: New Directions in Media and Politics (New Directions in American Politics)

The field of media and politics is quickly changing as society transforms and new technologies develop continuously. Academic research in the area is rapidly breaking new ground to keep pace with the prolific media developments. This innovative, up-to-date text moves beyond rudimentary concepts and definitions to consider the exciting scholarly research that addresses the monumental recent changes in the media system of the United States and the world. This carefully crafted volume addresses the big questions that academic researchers are asking, exposing students to the rigorous scholarship in the field but making it readily understandable by undergraduate students.

Each chapter starts with a "big question" about the impact of the news media, provides an overview of the more general topic, and then answers that question by appealing to the best, most-up-to-date research in the field. The volume as a whole is held together by an exploration of the rapidly changing media environment and the influence these changes have on individual political behavior and governments as a whole.

New Directions in Media and Politics will make an ideal book for courses as it digs deeper into the questions that standard textbooks only hint at―and presents scholarly evidence to support the arguments made.

About the Author:

Travis N. Ridout is Associate Professor and Thomas S. Foley Distinguished Professor of Government and Public Policy in the School of Politics, Philosophy and Public Affairs at Washington State University. He is co-author of The Persuasive Power of Campaign Advertising (2011) and Campaign Advertising and American Democracy (2007).

Review:

"Ridout has assembled a strong cast of scholars whose work addresses the consistently complex and ever-evolving relationships between media and politics. Each chapter is serious yet accessible, and equally fitting for undergraduate and graduate courses. Collectively, they speak to a host of political players and nuanced communication processes, and remind us of the fragility of answers to our questions today. Indeed, there are many new - and unanticipated - directions in media and politics."

―Patricia Moy, University of Washington

"This accessible volume addresses recent changes in the American media system that are reshaping the way citizens and their leaders do democracy together. Its scholarly contributors represent the leading edge of new research on the ways our changing media environment is influencing news exposure, media effects, and strategic communication tactics. Anyone interested in the latest developments on these topics would do well to consult this timely contribution."

―Scott Althaus, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

"New Directions in Media and Politics takes on the new media age, analyzing to what extent the changes could affect long standing theories in political behavior. This book will resonate with how students experience contemporary campaigns in ways previous texts no longer do."
―John Barry Ryan, Florida State University
