'Moores rejects the thesis that the world is becoming 'placeless'. Engaging critically with a broad range of social theorists, communication researchers and geographers, he shows how media have been incorporated into the experience of place.' Paul Adams, University of Texas at Austin 'With its powerful advocacy of a 'non-media-centric' approach, this original and carefully argued book is to be welcomed as a significant intervention in the theoretical re-assessment of the field of media studies as a whole.' John Tomlinson, Nottingham Trent University Media, Place and Mobility offers a new understanding of media uses as place-making practices in everyday living. Drawing primarily on phenomenological perspectives, Shaun Moores focuses on the ways in which people inhabit physical and media environments, and he explores the bodily and technologically mediated mobilities that are involved in this activity of dwelling. His discussion includes many specific examples of mobility, from the manipulation of remote-control devices to the movements of walking and driving in the city or of getting around in online social spaces. Written in an accessible style, the book invites its readers to participate in the interdisciplinary adventure of non-media-centric media studies. Shaun Moores is Professor of Media and Communications at the University of Sunderland. He is the author of four previous books, including Media and Everyday Life in Modern Society (2000) and Media/Theory (2005).

Politics, Society, and the Media is the first comprehensive political sociology of the media to be published in Canada. Paul Nesbitt-Larking draws upon a range of disciplines, including cultural and media studies, political economy, social theory, and political science to provide an analysis of the relationship between power and representation in Canada. The framework for the book presents a model of the mutual interaction between politics and the media. Attention is focused in the early chapters on how cultural, ideological, economic, and governmental forces shape and condition the production of media in Canada. Chapters on the work of Innis, Grant, McLuhan, and their postmodern successors place the evolution of McLuhan's theoretical argument that "the medium is the message" at the heart of the book. Canadian identity, and how to understand Canadian media politically, is the subject of a chapter on textual analysis. Two extensive chapters follow on the media?s influence and effects on politics. In addition to standard topics on politics and the media, this new edition offers much more: an examination of the media on the politics of gender and aboriginal peoples, the micro-politics of the media workplace, and an exploration of important media-related considerations. Throughout, reference is made to relevant and compelling issues placed within the context of media theory.
