Placing convergence at the center of the discussion, this text uses the technologies we employ every day to explain our current media environment, and to project where we might be headed.

Editorial Reviews

Rather than incorporate new media as an afterthought or a specific chapter, Pavlik and McIntosh make it the center of the text. This is not at the expense of explorations of more traditional media like radio and television; rather they highlight how new media has transformed and continues tochallenge the so-called 'old media' industries."--Amelia H. Arsenault, Georgia State University
