The Dynamics of Political Communication Book Review:

The third edition of The Dynamics of Political Communication continues its comprehensive coverage of communication and politics, focusing on problematic issues that bear on the functioning of democracy in an age of partisanship, social media, and political leadership that questions media’s legitimacy. The book covers the intersections between politics and communication, calling on related social science disciplines as well as normative political philosophy. This new edition is thoroughly updated and includes a survey of the contemporary political communication environment, unpacking fake news, presidential communication, hostile media bias, concerns about the waning of democracy, partisan polarization, political advertising and marketing, the relationship between social media and the news media, and the 2020 election, all the while drawing on leading new scholarship in these areas. It's ideally suited for upper-level undergraduate and graduate political communication courses in communication, journalism, and political science programs. This edition again features online resources with links to examples of political communication in action, such as videos, news articles, tweets, and press releases. For instructors, an instructor’s manual, lecture slides, and test questions are also provided. Access the support material at www.routledge.com/9780367279417

Converging Media Book Review:

Digital media is changing the ways in which we communicate: we watch TV and movies online, call friends on computers, and read newspapers on cell phones. Converging Media: A New Introduction to Mass Communication, Second Edition, by John V. Pavlik and Shawn McIntosh, uses the technologies we employ every day to explain our current media environment--and to project where we might be headed. Rather than discussing each media industry in isolation, Converging Media shows how each branch of media (print, visual, and audio) relates to and influences the others. This enables students to see the inextricable and dynamic relationship between converging media and traditional media formats. The fully revised and updated second edition: * Opens with a discussion of digital media, giving students an immediate frame of reference as they learn about the historical development of mass communication * Offers an entire chapter on newly emerging, cutting-edge media (Social Media and Web 2.0) * Integrates ethics concerns and global perspectives throughout: - Convergence Culture boxes cover the ways in which media impacts our social, political, and popular cultures - Convergence Context boxes place hard-to-understand concepts and technologies within familiar, relevant contexts - International Perspectives boxes showcase the similarities--and differences--of media and technology throughout the world * Incorporates highly engaging pedagogy: - Opening vignettes contain interesting stories and timely photos that relate chapter content to the overarching theme of media convergence - Media Quizzes provide students with lighthearted--yet thought-provoking--self-tests Conclusions, Discussion Questions, and up-to-date Further Reading lists round off every chapter * Features a comprehensive support package: - For students: Online study guide and Companion Website (www.oup.com/us/pavlik) - For instructors: PowerPoint-based lecture slides, Instructor's Manual with printed Test Bank, and Computerized Test Bank Cutting-edge, comprehensive, and compelling, Converging Media, Second Edition, is ideal for courses in introductory mass communication.

The Oxford Handbook of Networked Communication Book Review:

Communication technologies, including the internet, social media, and countless online applications create the infrastructure and interface through which many of our interactions take place today. This form of networked communication creates new questions about how we establish relationships, engage in public, build a sense of identity, and delimit the private domain. The ubiquitous adoption of new technologies has also produced, as a byproduct, new ways of observing the world: many of our interactions now leave a digital trail that, if followed, can help us unravel the rhythms of social life and the complexity of the world we inhabit--and thus help us reconstruct the logic of social order and change. The analysis of digital data requires partnerships across disciplinary boundaries that--although on the rise--are still uncommon. Social scientists and computer scientists have never been closer in their goals of trying to understand communication dynamics, but there are not many venues where they can engage in an open exchange of methods and theoretical insights. This handbook brings together scholars across the social and technological sciences to lay the foundations of communication research in the networked age, and to provide a canon of how research should be conducted in the digital era. The contributors highlight the main theories currently guiding their research in digital communication, and discuss state-of-the-art methodological tools, including automated text analysis, the analysis of networks, and the use of natural experiments in virtual environments. Following a general introduction, the handbook covers network and information flow, communication and organizational dynamics, interactions and social capital, mobility and space, political communication and behavior, and the ethics of digital research.

Advances in Foundational Mass Communication Theories Book Review:

Providing leading-edge perspectives on the legacy theories of mass media and society, this collection advances the foundational theories of mass communications, which have sustained the field of study over the past fifty years. Many of these contributions were originally published as a Deutschmann Scholarly Essay in the Mass Communication and Society journal, and together they comprise a remarkable source of knowledge, equipped to lead mass communications theory through the emergence of new technologies, and the evolution of communications, in the 21st century. Moreover, the contributions gathered in this volume contradict any critics who may claim the theories of the 20th century have outlived their usefulness, for these prove to guide contemporary research as forcefully as ever in the digital era. Validating the classic media theories across time and their various forms constitute the second focal section of this volume. Finally, senior media scholars offer their views on the future directions in which mass communication theories can be advanced.
