Aspen Handbook on the Media: Research, Publications, Organizations.
Rivers, William L., Ed.; Slater, William T., Ed.
Information about organizations and research in the communications field is compiled in this handbook. The focus is not upon communications in the broadest sense, but is rather restricted specifically to the media, with emphasis being kept on major organizations and institutions. The first three sections list universities conducting major media research, other institutions conducting major media research, and major institutions supporting media research. In each case, brief descriptions of the programs being conducted or supported are given. Part 4 provides a roster of media publications, with short annotaions describing their scope and contents. The following section lists media organizations along with their histories, functions, and publications. Part 6 is devoted to broadcasting action groups and Part 7 to major libraries and other repositories of media information. The final section contains a guide to government deliberations on the media.
