'...a lively introduction to media and politics, with timely chapters on the media, war and terrorism and the internet. If you want to know why media matters in politics this is a great place to start.'
Dr Margaret Scammell, London School of Economics and Political Science
'This book has the truly international perspective that helps to put politics and media in the context of current world events...a unique and valuable text.'
Professor Lynda Lee Kaid, University of Florida
The book is a quite complete introduction to the study of media and politics; it is well-conceived, well organized, and well written.
Perhaps it is a little bit too demanding for undergraduate students, despite author's efforts to keep things simple and clear. But this cannot be considered in itself as a flaw, since it is due to the quality of the analysis conducted. Moreover, the author uses keypoints at the beginning and the end of each chapter, in order to make easier the reading and favours the understanding.
