Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Media and Society is a lively, illustrated introduction to the role that mass media--and the messages and texts they carry--play in our lives and our society. Arthur Asa Berger explores the time we spend with media, media aesthetics, ethics, audiences, media effects, technologies, violence and sexuality in media, and ownership. Media and Society helps us understand the relationship between consumers and media--the books, television, radio, magazines, web sites, video games, newspapers, movies, and other mass media we encounter every day.

Book News Annotation:

Adopting a psychosocial approach to media studies, Berger (emeritus, broadcast and electronic communications arts, San Francisco State U.) presents an introductory college-level textbook (aimed primarily at students in the United States) on the impact of media on society. He provides chapters that ruminate on such issues as the relationship between media and violence, the creation of mass culture, the social impact of new media technologies, and the creation of the "ur-text" (or mass-mediated text).
