Understanding Media CultureDe (autor) Jostein Gripsrud
en Limba Engleză Paperback – March 2002
This refreshingly different introduction to media studies offers an understanding of the mass media which is critical but which does not deny the pleasures they offer. Reflecting the trends of today's media and cultural studies courses, it introduces students both to social scientific approaches and those of the humanities and aesthetics.
'In his book, Jostein Gripsud provides an admirable overview of communication studies...It is one of the strengths of this book that he presents some conclusions from his previous works that are not available in English...Gripsrud knows his broad field very well and his takes on the melodramatic imagination are quite inspiring'
'A book like this can be dry, impenetrable. That's not the case with 'Understanding Media Culture'. This is an excellent introductory text to media studies for undergraduates as well as an overview for new graduate students and, perhaps, even a primer for scholars who haven't kept up with what's going on.'
