Mass Media: The Invisible Environment.
Glessing, Robert J.; White, William P.
This anthology for students of media consists of essays and articles grouped under four topics: media forms, media content, media environments, and "the last word." Media forms deals with the nature of these kinds of media: electronic, print, film, music, and comics, graffiti, and clothing. Media content contains articles on the news, advertising, sports, and children and education via the media. Media environments concern the following subjects: politics, censorship, and the media; the American mind, persuasion, and the media; economics and media; drugs, the counterculture, and media; and media watchers and critics. Finally, articles suggest how television and the new media forms like cable and satellites may change the way people live. The instructor guide contains one-paragraph summaries of each article in the anthology and also discussion questions for the various sections. (JK)
