Communications and Media: Constructing a Cross-Discipline.
Gordon, George N.
The contents of this book focus on various aspects of studies in communications, examining relevant criteria for their disciplined study, evaluating present research and criticism, and suggesting future directions of inquiry in the field of communications. Part one concerns the technology, viewpoints, and categories of communications; part two discusses the cultural, critical, and analytical approaches to the press, cinema, and broadcasting; part three focuses on the societal controls on communications-- industries, legalities, and audiences: and part four suggests some ways in which a cross-discipline of communications studies may best be constructed. Lists of recommended readings and notes are included for each chapter, and an index is provided. (JM)
