- This text provides a thorough and engaging introduction to media and communications studies. It works through many of the major topics found in first year media and communications courses. Fictionalised and real examples are provided to put the theory into context and to reinforce comprehension. The first section of the book introduces readers to the building blocks of communication; its basic tools, devices and approaches. The second section takes the ideas and concepts in the first part and applies them to 'new' media. Covered here are topics including ideology in film and television, organisational communication, values in the new digital world and how identity, privacy, deception and truth have been redefined. The third part looks at communication today; exploring what it might be like to live in an increasingly digital world.
