Mass media has become an integral part of the human experience. News travels around the world in a split second affecting people in other countries in untold ways. Although being on top of the news may be good, at least for news junkies, mass media also transmits values or the lack thereof, condenses complex events and thoughts to simplified sound bites and often ignores the essence of an event or story. The selective bibliography gathers the books and magazine literature over the previous ten years while providing access through author, title and subject indexes.

This comprehensive Handbook provides a synthesis of current work and research in media management and economics. The volume has been developed around two primary objectives: assessing the state of knowledge for the key topics in the media management and economics fields; and establishing the research agenda in these areas, ultimately pushing the field in new directions. Edited by three well-known and widely published scholars, the Handbook is the definitive source for study in media management and economics. Its chapters are organized into parts addressing the theoretical components, key issues, analytical tools, and future directions for research. Each chapter offers the current state of theory and scholarship of a specific area of study, and the volume contributors--all well established in their areas of specialty--represent domestic and international scholarship. With its unparalleled breadth of content from expert authors, the Handbook provides background knowledge of the various theoretical dimensions and historical paradigms, and establishes the direction for the next phases of research in this growing arena of study. Standing alone as a thorough summary of existing theory and research, the Handbook of Media Management and Economics will serve to stimulate future thought and research in the media management and economics disciplines. As such, this volume will be a required reference for students, professors, and industry practitioners for years to come.

One of the most cherished principles in American journalism is the notion that unpopular and even hated ideas deserve First Amendment protection and fair-handed treatment from journalists. But has this principle always existed, and how are hated ideas treated during times of crisis, such as war?In this book, media historians Hazel Dicken-Garcia and Giovanna Dell?Orto find some of the answers by analyzing newspaper coverage of hated ideas ? such as abolitionism to some and slavery to others ? during the American Civil War. They found that the Civil War strengthened the idea of journalism?s responsibility to the public; editors often had eloquent free speech discussions; and opposition presses were sometimes defended.However, the data also showed that tolerance was the exception rather than the rule. ?[E]ditors consistently supported the larger political system over any professional journalism ideology, the 'common good? over individual rights, and military 'discretion? over constitutional principles,? the authors write.

Doris Grabers classic text on the mass media continues a strong tradition of combining comprehensive coverage and cutting-edge theory. An ideal core text, this trusted and balanced volume explores the foundations of the American mass media system with a focus on political and technological developments. Graber shows students how the media inuences governmental institutions and functions, and in turn how the government shapes the way the media works and disseminates information. Her broad coverage has three focal points: the news medias role in both the public and private sectors; the medias impact on the attitudes and perceptions of ordinary Americans and political elites; and the ways in which the news media cover governmental institutions and political situations.

This book argues that the no-Marxists mostly have it wrong. Although corporate media are structurally organized to maximize profits and produce content that generally helps elites achieve their goals, this does not mean corporate media have less capacity to facilitate social change than entrepreneurial or other forms of media. In fact, historical evidence and comparative critical studies presented in this book show that mass media become more, not less, critical of dominant power groups, institutions and value systems as they become more "corporatized."This proposition is part of a larger theoretical model that integrates the role of both social structure and human agency in explaining the persistence of modern capitalism. The structural part of the theory also enables scholars to make predictions about the future of mass media, including the ideas that the Internet is "stealing" some of the mediating power of traditional mass media, and the market power of global media will grow in absolute terms but will shrink in relative terms because of increasing competition from new and traditional media.
