Editorial Reviews

.,."The book provides insightful critiques of the weaknesses in media studies of content analysis (a common media research technique), and social learning theory, which underpins many working hypotheses in health communications. Fisher's book also is one of the first in health communications literature to report econometric studies that analyze the impact of media exposure on consumption patterns for alcohol and cigarettes. ...the interdisciplinary sweep makes the book valuable for graduate collections."-Choice
