Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159558207X, Hardcover)

In this brilliant new book, Robert W. McChesney, one of America's leading media scholars and activists, brings both his authoritative analysis and unparalleled historical knowledge to bear on the growing but only fitfully successful field of media criticism and scholarship.

McChesney explains why we are in the midst of a communication revolution that is at the center of twenty-first-century life. Yet this profound juncture is not well understood, in part, because our media criticism and media scholarship have not been up to the task. Why is media not at the center of political debate? Why are students of the media considered second-class scholars?

With a concise history of media studies, McChesney explains the important work of analysts like Noam Chomsky, Marshall McLuhan, and Alexander Meiklejohn, while showing how communication scholarship grew increasingly irrelevant in recent years, even as media became a decisive issue of our times. Now the burgeoning media reform movement, in which McChesney has been a key player, has made it even more clear that the revolution in communication demands a political and intellectual revolution as well.
