Media/Society: Industries, Images, and Audiences, Fifth Edition, by David Croteau and William Hoynes provides a framework for understanding the relationship between media and society and helps readers develop skills for critically evaluating both conventional wisdom and their own assumptions about the social role of the media. Retaining its acclaimed sociological framework, the Fifth Edition covers new studies, includes up-to-date material about today’s rapidly changing media landscape, and significantly expands discussions of the “new media” world, including digitization, the Internet, the spread of mobile media devices, the role of user-generated content, the potential social impact of new media on society, and new media’s effect on traditional media outlets. Updated research, the latest industry data, and current examples from popular media illustrate enduring themes in the sociology of media.

In the Fourth Edition of Media Analysis Techniques, author Arthur Asa Berger once again provides students with a clearly written, user-friendly, hands-on guide to media research methods and techniques. The book empowers readers to make their own analyses of the media rather than just accept how others interpret the media. Media Analysis Techniques begins by examining four techniques of media interpretation--semiotic theory, Marxist theory, psychoanalytic theory, and sociological theory--that Berger considers critical for creative people to acknowledge if they are to understand how their creations translate to the real world. Application chapters then link popular culture to these four theories. Written in an accessible style that demystifies complex concepts, it includes a glossary, study guides, and the author's own illustrations.
