Essentials of Mass Communication Theory


July 1995 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

"Arthur Asa Berger provides a succinct, accurate, and enjoyable introduction to the mass communications field. Although the book covers the same topics as other introductory works. . . his writing and organization make the material seem like a light repast rather than an overbearing meal. . . . Essential for all undergraduate collections in mass communication theory and mass media studies."
