Praise for Media & Culture

Media & Culture is

a solid, thorough,

and interesting text.

I will be a stronger

mass communication

instructor for having

 and Culture

read this text.

MYLEEA D. HILL,

ARKANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY

Media & Culture is the

best survey text of the

current crop. The writing

is well constructed and

does not talk down to

the students.

STEVE MILLER,

RUTGERS UNIVERSITY

 

Media & Culture’s critical

approach to the history,

theory, economy, technology,

and regulation of the various

mass media helps students

become critical users of

the media.

SHIO NAM,

UNIVERSITY OF NORTH FLORIDA

Media & Culture is

media literacy meets

mass communication—

it really connects the

two, something

we should all be

focusing on.

WENDY NELSON,

PALOMAR COLLEGE

 

I think the Campbell text is outstanding.

It is a long-overdue

media text that is grounded

in pressing questions about

American culture and its

connection to the techniques

and institutions of commercial

communication. It is, indeed,

an important book. At the

undergraduate level, that’s

saying something.

STEVE M. BARKIN,

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND

Media & Culture respects

students’ opinions, while

challenging them to take

more responsibility and to

be accountable for their

media choices. This text

is essential for professors

who are truly committed

to teaching students how

to understand the media.

DREW JACOBS,

CAMDEN COUNTY COLLEGE

 

I will switch to Campbell

because it is a tour de force

of coverage and interpretation,

it is the best survey text in

the field hands down, and

it challenges students.

Campbell’s text is the most

thorough and complete in

the field. . . . No other text is

even close.

RUSSELL BARCLAY,

QUINNIPIAC UNIVERSITY

The feature boxes

are excellent and are

indispensable to any

classroom.

MARVIN WILLIAMS,

KINGSBOROUGH

COMMUNITY COLLEGE

 

The critical perspective

has enlightened the

perspective of all of us

who study media, and

Campbell has the power

to infect students with

his love of the subject.

ROGER DESMOND,

UNIVERSITY OF HARTFORD

I love Media & Culture! I have

used it since the first edition.

Media & Culture integrates the

history of a particular medium

or media concept with the

culture, economics, and

the technological advances

of the time. But more than that,

the authors are explicit in their

philosophy that media and

culture cannot be separated.

DEBORAH LARSON,

MISSOURI STATE UNIVERSITY
