Show Summary Details


This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this book, which is the power, form and subjectivity of the media, explaining that the term theorising is used in the book to indicate the activity of trying to reach adequate conceptual terms for understanding media structures and processes. This book is divided into two parts. The first part explores the three aspects or dimensions of media structure and process that are central to any understanding of how the media work, and the second consists of a number of more-focused analytic commentaries and case studies, which both draw upon and contribute to conceptual discussion and development regarding these aspects.

Keywords: media; power; form; subjectivity; analytic commentaries; case studies
