  • The perfect introduction to the field of media studies
  • Chronicles the recent dramatic changes in communication technologies, arguing that most of life itself is now experienced as 'mediated'
  • Discusses the development of cable and satellite television, VCRs, DVDs, the internet and personal computers

From the Back Cover:

In the past two decades, the way we experience the world through media has altered in revolutionary ways.  These changes affect the way we watch older media like television, movies, and radio, and offer up rich new interactive media, like video games and the Internet. Understanding these changes is a challenge that confronts us every day in our roles as citizens, consumers, parents, students, and workers. 

The New Media Environment examines the new and rapidly developing field of media studies to discover what insights it has to offer students and general readers as they negotiate their way through the new – and thoroughly saturated – media environment. The perfect introduction to the field, the book chronicles the recent dramatic changes in communication technologies, arguing that most of life itself is now experienced as “mediated.” Press and Williams discuss the development of cable and satellite television, VCRs, DVDs, the Internet and personal computers, and emphasize the broader political, social, and economic context within which these new technologies have developed.
