about

The relationship between media and the organizations they cover has changed dramatically in the last few decades, which have witnessed a huge expansion of news coverage focusing on different types of organizations and their activities. In parallel, organizations have dramatically increased their investment in public relations and other media-oriented forms of communication. Like other societal developments ' globalization, marketization, individualization, scientification ' mediatization has become an institutional force.

This book analyses the mediatization of contemporary organizations and how individual organizations, industry or markets are scrutinized. It examines its key influence on the actions of organizations, and how it shaptes the entire landscape in which the organizations operate. What such a perspective provides is the accentuation of the interplay between organizations and different parts of the society as embedded in the media and its logic.

This will be essential reading for professionals, academics and advanced students in organizational studies, public relations and media studies.

Editorial Reviews

'This highly interesting volume brings together expert knowledge on the growing interdependence between media and organizations and is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the mediatized conditions of today¿s organizational practices.' - Stig Hjarvard, Professor, University of Copenhagen, Denmark 'Understanding the intersecting communication activities of journalism and business, political and non-governmental organizations is vital. These news reports are a central influence on how society views organizations, and here an international group of scholars examines their creation by the media and organizations.' - Maxwell McCombs, Professor Emeritus, The University of Texas, USA 'Mediatization is one the fastest-growing debates in communications research, but its growth depends on well-informed empirical research. This edited collection on organizations outside media is a major contribution to this interdisciplinary field, examining from many angles news production about and within contemporary organizations.' - Nick Couldry, Professor, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK.
