Editorial Reviews

"Communication and New Media is a well-argued book written with conviction that introduces students to advanced theories in media studies, grounded in topical case studies from today's new media landscape. . . . The text ably deconstructs the popular myths, both utopian and dystopian, thatframe much of the discourse around new media, presenting a more nuanced and economically grounded analysis of media, and more importantly, its connection to broader social relations." --Nicholas Balaisis, Concordia University
