Hesmondhalgh, David and Toynbee, Jason eds.
The Media and Social Theory.
Culture, Economy and the Social.
Abingdon, Oxon: Routledge.
Media studies needs more critical intellectual resources. This book brings together both major and emerging media analysts to consider media change and so deepen these resources. Case studies range from reality television to professional journalism, from blogging to control of copyright, from social networking to indigenous media in Europe, North America, Asia and elsewhere. Among the theoretical approaches and issues addressed are:
- critical realism
- poststructuralist perspectives
- Bourdieu and field theory
- Marxism and post-Marxism
- Habermas and third generation critical theory
- actor network theory
- theories of democracy, antagonism and difference
