Editorial Reviews

"Chandler and Munday have produced a wonderful volume that is much more than a simple dictionary. The book concisely summarizes over 2,000 terms and concepts from multiple subfields of media and communication and related disciplines. It also provides extensive cross-references, which encouragereaders to understand relationships among concepts and to make connections across different discourses. As result, the volume offers a fine introduction to the field to students and other newcomers while also enabling specialists in each subfield of communication to better understand and communicatewith each other." --Joshua Meyrowitz, author of No Sense of Place: The Impact of Electronic Media on Social Behavior (Oxford University Press)
