The Media in Europe
The Euromedia Handbook
- Mary Kelly - University College Dublin, Ireland
- Gianpietro Mazzoleni - Euromedia Research Group, Austria
- Denis McQuail - University of Amsterdam, Netherlands
Completely rewritten, the Third Edition of this successful guide to European media systems has also been expanded to include Central and Eastern Europe as well as Western Europe.
Covering 23 countries, the volume highlights and explains key issues of debate and current tendencies in media policy and provides basic statistics relating to each case study.The chapters are written by an expert from the country concerned. Most of these are members of the Euromedia Research Group, a research collective that has been active for more than 20 years and has produced a series of assessments of media policy developments in Europe.
This is a good supplemental read but might be a bit too difficult for 1st year students. However, I will recommend it as additional reading for special assignments.
