NEW

Joseph Turow Media Today puts students at the center of profound changes in the twenty-first century media world – from digital convergence to media ownership – and gives them the skills to think critically about what these changes mean for the role of media in their lives. Completely revised with updated examples, case studies, and media resources, the third edition of this innovative mass communication textbook is built upon a media systems approach that gives students an insider’s perspective on how mass media industries operate. Joseph Turow emphasizes throughout the many ways in which media convergence has blurred distinctions between and among various media. Each chapter guides students through the essential history of media industries; examines the current forces shaping their creation, distribution and exhibition; and explores the impact of emerging trends in media and society from globalization to social networking to video games.

Drawing upon an array of disciplines from neuroscience to philosophy, and art to social theory, David Gauntlett explores the ways in which researchers can embrace people’s everyday creativity in order to understand social experience. Seeking an alternative to traditional interviews and focus groups, he outlines studies in which people have been asked to make visual things – such as video, collage, and drawing – and then interpret them. This leads to an innovative project in which Gauntlett asked people to build metaphorical models of their identities in Lego. This creative reflective method provides insights into how individuals present themselves, understand their own life story, and connect with the social world. Creative Explorations is a lively and original discussion of identities, media influences, and creativity, which will be of interest to both students and academics.

From Telecommunications to Media

Nicholas Mirzoeff

Edited by Daya K. Thussu, University of Westminster, UK

Edited by Gerard Goggin and Larissa Hjorth, RMIT University, Australia

Series: Internationalizing Media Studies

Series: Routledge Research in Cultural and Media Studies

The explosion of transnational information flows, made possible by new technologies and institutional changes, (economic, political and legal) have profoundly affected the study of global media.

Featuring studies from China, Japan, Korea, Italy, Norway, France, Belgium, Britain, and Australia – this timely volume examines how mobiles are being incorporated into and, indeed, are changing, contemporary media – charting the social, cultural, creative, and design aspects of mobile media and discussing the development, adoption, use, and consumption of these new technologies.

This collection of essays by leading scholars from around the world aims to stimulate a debate about the imperatives for internationalizing media studies, and provides much-needed material on the dynamics of the media studies field in a global context. Lively and current case studies are included within the essays to exemplify the main arguments.

This groundbreaking and compelling book illuminates the Western experience of the Iraqi war and examines the experience of watching the war against Iraq on television, on the Internet, in the cinema and in print media. 2004: 216x138: 216pp Hb: 978-0-415-34309-1: £55.00 Pb: 978-0-415-34310-7: £14.99

Media, War & Postmodernity Philip Hammond, Southbank University, London, UK

NEW

Media, War & Postmodernity investigates how conflict and international intervention have changed since the end of the Cold War, asking why Western military operations are now conducted as high-tech media spectacles, apparently more important for their propaganda value than for any strategic aims.

International Communication: A Reader Edited by Daya K. Thussu, University of Westminster, UK This comprehensive Reader brings together seminal texts in media and communication from both traditional as well as more recent scholarship. Readings are drawn from a broad range of international scholarship and organized to reflect the growing internationalization of the field, with clearly defined sections covering key aspects of global communication. In addition to the core academic readings, key policy documents are also included to demonstrate the development of the political, economic and technological infrastructure that underpins the global system of media and communication.

Discussing the humanitarian interventions of the 1990s and the War on Terror, the book analyzes the rise of a postmodern sensibility in domestic and international politics, and explores how the projection of power abroad is undermined by a lack of cohesion and purpose at home. Drawing together debates from a variety of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives, Philip Hammond argues that contemporary warfare may be understood as ’postmodern’ in that it is driven by the collapse of grand narratives in Western societies and constitutes an attempt to recapture a sense of purpose and meaning.

Additional features include: • an annotated bibliography • a timeline of main events in global communication

In this new text, Brian McNair examines the processes of cultural, geographic and political dissolution in the post-Cold War era and the rapid evolution of information and communication technologies. He investigates the impact of these trends on domestic and international journalism and on political processes in democratic and authoritarian societies across the world. Written in a lively and accessible style, Cultural Chaos provides students with an overview of the evolution of the sociology of journalism, a critical review of current thinking within media studies and an argument for a revision and renewal of the paradigms that have dominated the field since the early twentieth century. Separate chapters are devoted to new developments such as the rise of the blogosphere and satellite television news and their impact on journalism more generally. Cultural Chaos is essential reading for all those interested in the emerging globalized news culture of the twenty-first century. 2006: 234x156: 272pp Hb: 978-0-415-33912-4: £60.00 Pb: 978-0-415-33913-1: £16.99 • AVAILABLE AS AN INSPECTION COPY

Media on the Move Global Flow and Contra-Flow Edited by Daya K. Thussu, University of Westminster, UK Series: Communication and Society Media on the Move provides a critical analysis of the dynamics of the international flow of images and ideas. This comes at a time when the political, economic and technological contexts within which media organizations operate are becoming increasingly global. The surge in transnational traffic in media products has primarily benefited the major corporations such as Disney, AOL, Time Warner and News Corporation. However, as this book argues, new networks have emerged which buck this trend: Brazilian TV is watched in China; Indian films have a huge following in the Arab world; and Al Jazeera has become a household name in the West. Combining a theoretical perspective on contra-flow of media with grounded case studies into one up-to-date and accessible volume, Media on the Move provides a much-needed guide to the globalization of media, going beyond the standard Anglo-American view of this evolving phenomenon.

Remaking Media

The Mediation of Power

Narrating Media History

The Struggle to Democratize Public Communication

A Critical Introduction

Edited by Michael Bailey, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK

Robert Hackett and William Carroll

Aeron Davis, Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK Series: Communication and Society The Mediation of Power investigates how those in positions of power use and are influenced by media in their everyday activities. Each chapter examines this theme through an exploration of some of the key topic areas and debates in the field. The topics covered are: • theories of media and power • media policy and the economics of information • news production and journalistic practice • public relations and media management • political communication and mediated politics • new and alternative media • interest group communications • media audiences and effects. The debates are enlivened by first-hand accounts taken from over 200 high-profile interviews with politicians, journalists, public officials, spin doctors, campaigners and captains of industry. Tim Bell, David Blunkett, Iain Duncan Smith, Simon Heffer, David Hill, Simon Hughes, Trevor Kavanagh, Neil Kinnock, Peter Riddell, Polly Toynbee, Michael White, and Ann Widdecombe are some of those cited.

Taking an innovative approach, Hackett and Carroll pay attention to an emerging social movement that appears at the cutting edge of cultural and political contention, and ground their work in three scholarly traditions that provide interpretive resources for the study of democratic media activism: • political theories of democracy • critical media scholarship • the sociology of social movements. 2006: 234x156: 256pp Hb: 978-0-415-39468-0: £70.00 Pb: 978-0-415-39469-7: £18.99 • AVAILABLE AS AN INSPECTION COPY

Free Expression, Media and the West from Gutenberg to Google

Gholam Khiabany, London Metropolitan University, USA Iranian Media provides an overview of the expansion of the Iranian communication system, examining the political economy of this process and arguing that the nature of Iranian media in general and the press in particular cannot be understood simply in terms of ‘Islamic ideology’ or the false dichotomy of ’modernity’ versus ’tradition’.

Emerging Public Spheres and the Limits of the Press 5. Press, State and Civil Society: Illusions and Realities 6. Media Policy Under the Islamic Republic 7. The Politics of Broadcasting 8.

Loving with a Vengeance

From Live Journalism to Musical Recording

Series: Communication and Society

Mass Produced Fantasies for Women

Lars Nyre, University of Bergen, Norway

Western Media Systems offers a concise, authoritative and critical introduction to media systems in North America and Western Europe. The book offers a wide-ranging survey and an original contribution to comparative media analysis addressing the economic, social, political, regulatory and cultural aspects of Western media systems.

Tania Modleski, University of Southern California, USA Upon its first publication, Loving with a Vengeance was a groundbreaking study of women readers and their relationship to mass-market romance fiction. Feminist scholar and cultural critic Tania Modleski has revisited her widely read book, bringing to this new edition a review of the issues that have, in the intervening years, shaped and reshaped questions of women’s reading. With her trademark acuity and understanding of the power both of the mass-produced object, film, television, or popular literature, and the complex workings of reading and reception, she offers here a framework for thinking about one of popular culture’s central issues.

Jonathan Hardy takes a thematic approach, guiding the reader through critical issues and debates, introducing key concepts and specialist literature. Western Media Systems will be essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students studying comparative and global media.

This edition includes a new introduction, a new chapter, and changes throughout the existing text.

Girls Make Media explores how young female media producers have reclaimed and reconfigured girlhood as a site for radical social, cultural, and political agency. Central to the book is an analysis of Riot Grrrl – a 1990s feminist youth movement from a fusion of punk rock and gender theory – and the girl power movement it inspired. The author also looks at the rise of girls-only media education programs, and the creation of girls’ studies.

What a Girl Wants?

Featuring a wide range of exercises, examples, and images, this textbook provides a practical way of analyzing the discourses of the global media industries. Building on a comprehensive introduction to the history and theory of global media communication, specific case studies of lifestyle and entertainment media are explored with examples from films, global women’s magazines, Vietnamese news reporting and computer war games. Finally this book investigates how global media communication is produced, looking at the formats, languages and images used in creating media materials, both globally and in localized forms.

At a time when the media is becoming increasingly global, often with the same films, news and television programmes shown all over the world; Global Media Discourse provides an accessible, lively introduction into how globalization is changing the language and communicative practices of the media. Integrating a range of approaches, including political economy, discourse analysis and ethnography, this book will be of particular interest to students of media and communication studies, applied linguistics, and (critical) discourse analysis.

What a Girl Wants? holds up a mirror to the contemporary female subject who finds herself the target of contemporary advertisers. Centralized in commodity culture to a largely unprecedented degree at a time when Hollywood romantic comedies, chick-lit, and femalecentered primetime TV dramas compete for her attention and spending power. Across the range of the female life cycle, girls and women of every age are now invited to celebrate their empowerment in a culture that sometimes seems dedicated to gratifying their every desire. This book asks why, at a moment of widespread and intense hype about the spectrum of female options, choices and pleasures available, so few women actually seem to find cause for celebration.

The Citizen Audience Crowds, Publics, and Individuals Richard Butsch, Rider University, USA In The Citizen Audience, Richard Butsch explores the cultural and political history of audiences in the United States from the nineteenth century to the present day. He demonstrates that, while attitudes toward audiences have shifted over time, Americans have always judged audiences against standards of good citizenship. From descriptions of tightly packed crowds in early American theatres to the contemporary reports of distant, anonymous Internet audiences, Butsch examines how audiences were represented in contemporary discourse. He explores a broad range of sources on theatre, movies, propaganda, advertising, broadcast journalism, and much more. Butsch discovers that audiences were characterized according to three recurrent motifs: as crowds and as isolated individuals in a mass, both of which were considered bad, and as publics which were considered ideal audiences. These images were based on and reinforced class and other social hierarchies. At times though, subordinate groups challenged their negative characterization in these images, and countered with their own interpretations. A remarkable work of cultural criticism and media history, this book is essential reading for anyone seeking a historical understanding of how audiences, media and entertainment function in the American cultural and political imagination.

New Media, Old Media A History and Theory Reader Edited by Wendy Hui Kyong Chun, Brown University, USA and Thomas Keenan, Bard College, USA New Media, Old Media is a comprehensive anthology of original and classic essays that explore the tensions of old and new in digital culture. Leading international media scholars and cultural theorists interrogate new media like the Internet, digital video, and MP3s against the backdrop of earlier media such as television, film, photography, and print. The essays provide new benchmarks for evaluating all those claims; political, social, ethical, made about the digital age. Committed to historical research and to theoretical innovation, they suggest that in the light of digital programmability, seemingly forgotten moments in the history of the media we glibly call old can be rediscovered and transformed. The many topics explored in provocative volume include websites, webcams, the rise and fall of dotcom mania, Internet journalism, the open source movement, and computer viruses.

This clear and comprehensive introduction explores the evolving relationship between new media, advertising and new media consumers. Tracing the shift from ’mass’ media to ’my’ media, Advertising and New Media critically evaluates the social and cultural implications on increased interactivity and consumer creativity for the future of advertising, with examples drawn from the USA, the UK, Europe, Australia and the People’s Republic of China. Features include: • evaluation of consumer-generated advertising, including the Coke Mentos phenomenon, and comparative analysis of the Dove ‘Real Beauty’ and Axe/Lynx ‘Effect’ campaigns • interviews with industry practitioners, providing first-hand insights on the impact of new media on advertising.

Playing With Videogames provides a comprehensive account of contemporary videogame cultures, investigating the variety of activities arising from and supporting videogames.

In a world increasingly marked by proliferating technologies, the way we encounter and understand these story-worlds, game spaces and art works reveals aspects of the ways in which we organize and decode the vast amount of visual material we are bombarded with each day. Working with examples from The Incredibles, The Matrix, Tomb Raider: Legend and Bill Viola’s The Five Angels for the Millenium, Aylish Wood considers how viewers engage with the diverse interfaces of digital effects cinema, digital games and time-based installations, and argues that technologies alter human engagement, distributing our attention across a network of images and objects.

The Meaning of Video Games Gaming and Textual Studies Steven E. Jones The Meaning of Video Games takes a textual studies approach to an increasingly important form of expression in today’s culture. It begins by assuming that video games are meaningful – not just as sociological or economic or cultural evidence, but in their own right, as cultural expressions worthy of scholarly attention. In this way, this book not only makes a contribution to the study of video games, but also aims to enrich textual studies. Early video game studies scholars were quick to point out that a game should never be reduced to merely its ’story’ or narrative content and they rightly insist on the importance of studying games as games. But here Steven E. Jones demonstrates that textual studies – which grows historically out of ancient questions of textual recension, multiple versions, production, reproduction, and reception – can fruitfully be applied to the study of video games. Citing specific examples such as Myst and Lost, Katamari Damacy, Halo, Façade, Nintendo’s Wii, and Will Wright’s Spore, the book explores the ways in which textual studies concepts – authorial intention, textual variability and performance, the paratext, publishing history and the social text – can shed light on video games as more than formal systems. It treats video games as cultural forms of expression that are received as they are played, out in the world, where their meanings get made.

The Video Game Theory Reader Edited by Mark J.P. Wolf and Bernard Perron In the early days of Pong and Pac Man, video games appeared to be little more than an idle pastime. Today, video games make up a multi-billion dollar industry that rivals television and film. The Video Game Theory Reader brings together exciting new work on the many ways video games are reshaping the face of entertainment and our relationship with technology. Drawing upon examples from widely popular games ranging from Space Invaders to Final Fantasy IX and Combat Flight Simulator 2, the contributors discuss the relationship between video games and other media; the shift from third- to first-person games; gamers and the gaming community; and the important sociological, cultural, industrial, and economic issues that surround gaming. 2003: 234x156: 320pp Pb: 978-0-415-96579-8: £19.99 • AVAILABLE AS AN INSPECTION COPY

Codifying Cyberspace Communications Self-Regulation in the Age of Internet Convergence

Series: LEA’s Media Management and Economics Series

Damian Tambini, Danilo Leonardi and Chris Marsden Can the Internet regulate itself? Faced with a range of ’harms’ and conflicts associated with the new media – from gambling to pornography – many governments have resisted the temptation to regulate, opting instead to encourage media providers to develop codes of conduct and technical measures to regulate themselves. Codifying Cyberspace looks at media self-regulation in practice, in a variety of countries. It also examines the problems of balancing private censorship against fundamental rights to freedom of expression and privacy for media users. This book is the first full-scale study of self-regulation and codes of conduct in these fast-moving new media sectors and is the result of a three-year Oxford University study funded by the European Commission.

Zero Comments Blogging and Critical Internet Culture Geert Lovink, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands In Zero Comments, internationally renowned media theorist and ’net critic’ Geert Lovink revitalizes worn out concepts about the Internet and interrogates the latest hype surrounding blogs and social network sites. Blogs, Lovink argues, are bringing about the decay of traditional broadcast media, and they are driven by an in-crowd dynamic in which social ranking is a primary concern. The lowest rung of the new Internet hierarchy are those blogs and sites that receive no user feedback or ‘zero comments’. Zero Comments also explores other important changes to Internet culture, as well, including the silent globalization of the Net in which the West is no longer the main influence behind new media culture, as countries like India, China and Brazil expand their influence and looks forward to speculate on the Net impact of organized networks, free cooperation and distributed aesthetics.

Handbook of Mass Media Ethics Edited by Lee Wilkins, University of Missouri, Columbia, USA and Clifford G. Christians, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA This Handbook encapsulates the intellectual history of mass media ethics over the past twenty-five years. Chapters will serve as a summary of existing research and thinking in the field, as well as setting agenda items for future research.

NEW

Crime, Justice and the Media Ian Marsh and Gaynor Melville, both at Liverpool Hope University, UK

This is the first book to explicitly combine law and ethics rather than separate them as is traditionally done. Many journalism and mass communication programs now include ’ethics’ in the title for the media law course - a recognition that journalism graduates must be grounded in ethics and that a combined course is the most feasible and effective way of accomplishing this goal. Sadly, most journalism students complete their degrees with limited, if any, understanding of the symbiotic relationship between media law and ethics. Each chapter in this book includes a discussion of the ethical dimensions of that specific legal topic to demonstrate where the law ends and ethics begins. Every journalist must establish a personal code of ethics, but the standards can best be understood within the context of mass media law. The question should not be simply ’How do I avoid a lawsuit?’, but rather ’How do I do what is right?’ To help students and professors more easily grasp the concepts of the laws and the ethics surrounding them, this volume offers a supplemental student study guide, instructor’s manual, and annual updates.

Crime, Justice and the Media examines and analyzes the relationship between the media and crime, criminals and the criminal justice system. It considers how crime and criminals have been portrayed by the media over time, applying different theoretical perspectives on the media to the way crime, criminals and justice is reported. It focuses on a number of specific areas of crime and criminal justice in terms of media representation – these areas include moral panics over specific crimes and criminals (including youth crime, cybercrime and paedophilia), the media portrayal of victims of crime and criminals and the way the media represent criminal justice agencies. The book offers a clear, accessible and comprehensive analysis of theoretical thinking on the relationship between the media, crime and criminal justice and a detailed examination of how crime, criminals and others involved in the criminal justice process are portrayed by the media. A key strength of the book is its interactive approach – throughout the text students are encouraged to respond to the material presented and think for themselves.

Theory and Practice From Concept to Screen

• a thorough update of individual film references

Donald L. Diefenbach

• a revised applications chapter that includes new contemporary examples

Combining topics typically found in a number of different textbooks for video production courses, Video Production Techniques is an integration of theory and production techniques. Diefenbach covers all the basics for writing, shooting, and editing videos, and as a result, this text has the potential to be crossdisciplinary, touching on subjects within advertising, public relations, organizational communication, and education.

This engaging and accessible introduction explores the intricacies of the film world to show how anyone can gain a broader understanding and a more pleasurable experience of film.

Trinh T. Minh-Ha, University of California-Berkeley, USA Endless travel in cyberspace, virtual reality, and the dream of limitless speed: technology changes our sense of self. In her new book, Trinh Minh-Ha explores the way technology transforms our perception of reality. ’We are all engaged in social rituals in our daily activities’, she writes, ’and by remaining unaware of their artistic ritual propensity, we remain ’in conformity’.’ Her goal, as a thinker and an artist, is to transform our understanding of technology and speed so that we are able to ’turn an instrument into a creative tool and to step out of the one-dimensional, technologically servile mind.’ The paradox that ’stillness contains speed within it’ is central to Trinh Minh-Ha’s concept of the digital apparatus. With her signature amalgam of feminism, Eastern philosophy, and practical understanding of filmmaking, Trinh MinhHa presents a much-needed advance in our concept of the real in a technological age.

Sociology through the Projector Bulent Diken, Lancaster University, UK and Carsten Bagge Laustsen, Aarhus University, DK Series: International Library of Sociology Sociology through the Projector takes issue with the question of how contemporary film can help answering the general, abstract but still urgent question: what is the social today? This book explains the performative relation to contemporary social theory in which cinema functions as a tool for social diagnosis. There is much to be learned about social theory through an encounter with films as they are part and parcel of the society they portray. Increasingly more lay knowledge about social problems and facts stems from cinema as it offers to large audiences a popular and pedagogical introduction to social knowledge. Social theory cannot avoid a critical engagement with cinema as cinema interprets, invents, displaces and distorts the object of sociological inquiry.

Bringing together twenty-five years of work on what he has called the ’historical poetics of cinema,’ David Bordwell presents an extended analysis of a key question for film studies: how are films made, in particular historical contexts, in order to achieve certain effects? For Bordwell, films are made things, existing within historical contexts, and aim to create determinate effects. Beginning with this central thesis, Bordwell works out a full understanding of how films channel and recast cultural influences for their cinematic purposes. With more than five hundred film stills, Poetics of Cinema is a must-have for any student of cinema.

Feminist Film Theorists Laura Mulvey, Kaja Silverman, Teresa de Lauretis, Barbara Creed Shohini Chaudhuri, University of Essex, UK Series: Routledge Critical Thinkers Focusing on the ground-breaking work of Laura Mulvey, Kaja Silverman, Teresa de Lauretis and Barbara Creed, this book explores how, since it began in the 1970s, feminist film theory has revolutionized the way that films and their spectators can be understood. Examining the new and distinctive approaches of each of these thinkers, this book provides the most detailed account so far of their ideas. It illuminates the six key concepts and demonstrates their value as tools for film analysis: • the male gaze

The authors question several dominant topics and concerns within social theory and film studies. Firstly, by cross-examining a series of concepts such as identity, representation, memory and surveillance (filming social behaviour) which are of concern to both film theory and social theory. Secondly, by trying to develop imaginative approaches to standard social concerns such as exclusion, gender roles and inequalities, power, infantilisation and commodification of the social and psychological bonds.

Writing History in Film

The Religion and Film Reader

William Guynn, Sonoma State University, USA

Film, History and Cultural Citizenship

Historical film has been an important genre since the earliest silent films. The French Revolution, the American Civil War, the conquest of the New World, World War Two – all have been repeatedly represented in film. But how do we distinguish between fictionalized spectacle and authentic historical representation?

Edited by Jolyon Mitchell, University of Edinburgh, UK and S. Brent Plate, Texas Christian University, USA ’This will undoubtedly become a key text for any serious course exploring the various ways in which religion and film intersect.’ – Gordon Lynch, Professor of Sociology of Religion, Birkbeck, University of London, UK Edited by leading experts in the field, The Religion and Film Reader brings together the key writings in this exciting and dynamic discipline. In over sixty interviews, essays and reviews from numerous directors, film critics and scholars, this eagerly anticipated anthology offers the most complete survey of this emerging field to date. The Religion and Film Reader is organized into the following thematic and chronological sections, each with an introduction by the editors: • the dawn of cinema: adherents and detractors • the birth of film theory: realism, formalism, and religious vision

Writing History in Film sets out the narratological, semiological, rhetorical, and philosophical bases for understanding how film can function as a form of historical interpretation and representation. With case studies and an interdisciplinary approach, William Guynn examines the key issues facing film students and scholars, historians, and anyone interested in how we see our historical past. 2006: 234x156: 232pp Hb: 978-0-415-97923-8: £60.00 Pb: 978-0-415-97924-5: £15.99

Sites of Production Edited by Tina Mai Chen and David S. Churchill, both at University of Manitoba, Canada Series: Routledge Studies in Cultural History This new book investigates the relationship of film to history, power, memory, and cultural citizenship. The book is concerned with two central issues: firstly, the participation of film and filmmakers in articulating and challenging projects of modernity; and, secondly, the role of film in shaping particular understandings of self and other to evoke collective notions of belonging. These issues call for interdisciplinary and multi-layered analyses that are ideally met through dialogue across place, time, identities and genres. The contributors to this volume enable this dialogue by considering the ways in which cultural expression and identity expressed through film serve to create notions of belonging, group identity, and entitlement within modern societies.

Consuming History

Thinking on Screen

Jerome De Groot, University of Manchester, UK

Film as Philosophy

Non-academic history – ‘public history’ – is a complex, dynamic entity which impacts on the popular understanding of the past at all levels. There is currently a voracious audience for all things historical: cultural histories, celebrity historians, historical novels, films, TV drama, documentaries and relaity shows, as well as cultural events and historical re-enactments.

Thomas E. Wartenberg, Mount Holyoke College, USA

In Consuming History, Jerome De Groot examines how society consumes history and how a reading of this consumption can help us understand popular culture and issues of representation. It looks at the presentation and interpretation of history across a wide range of media, from blockbuster fictional narratives such as The Da Vinci Code to televised documentaries such as Simon Schama’s A History of Britain and star-studded historical films like Titanic. Jerome De Groot probes how museums have responded to the heritage debate and the way in which new technologies have brought about a shift in historical access, from online gameplaying to internet genealogy. He also discusses the often conflicted relationship between ‘public’ and academic history, and raises important questions about the theory and practice of history as a discipline.

Thinking On Screen: Film as Philosophy is an accessible and thought-provoking examination of the way films raise and explore complex philosophical ideas. Written in a clear and engaging style, Thomas Wartenberg examines films’ ability to discuss, and even criticize ideas that have intrigued and puzzled philosophers over the centuries such as the nature of personhood, the basis of morality, and epistemological skepticism. Beginning with a demonstration of how specific forms of philosophical discourse are presented cinematically, Wartenberg moves on to offer a systematic account of the ways in which specific films undertake the task of philosophy. Focusing on the films The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Modern Times, The Matrix, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Third Man, The Flicker, and Empire, Wartenberg shows how these films express meaningful and pertinent philosophical ideas.

Consuming History is an important and engaging analysis of the social consumption of history and offers an essential path through the debates for readers interested in history, cultural studies and the media. December 2008: 234x156: 288pp Hb: 978-0-415-39946-3: £75.00 Pb: 978-0-415-39945-6: £22.99

• Do historical films necessarily make bad (or good) history? • Can film be used as historical evidence? • Are documentaries more useful to historians than historical drama? History Goes to the Movies considers that history is not simply to be found in films, but in the agreements and arguments of those who make and view them. Students will find this book an invaluable addition to their reading on both history and film studies courses.

Screening the Past

Talk to Her

Memory and Nostalgia in Cinema

Edited by Anne W. Eaton

Pam Cook

Pedro Almodovar is one of the most renowned film directors of recent years. Talk to Her is one of the most discussed and controversial of all his films. Dealing principally with the issue of rape, it also offers profound insights into the nature of love and friendship whilst raising important philosophical and moral questions in unsettling and often paradoxical ways.

• the relationship between art and morality and the problem of ’immoralism’

Screening the Past engages with current debates about the role of cinema in mediating history through memory and nostalgia, suggesting that many films use strategies of memory to produce diverse forms of knowledge which challenge established ideas of history, and the traditional role of historians.

• moral injury and its role in the way we form moral judgments, including the ethics of love and friendship

This is the first book to explore and address the philosophical aspects of Almodovar’s film. Opening with a helpful introduction by Noel Carroll that places the film in context, specially commissioned chapters examine the following topics:

• the nature of dialogue, sexual objectification and what ’listening to’ means in the context of gender • Almodovar’s use of allusion and the unmasking of appearances to explore hidden themes in human nature. Including annotated sections of further reading at the end of each chapter and a biography of Almodovar, Talk to Her is essential reading for students interested in philosophy and film as well as ethics and gender. It also provides an accessible and informative insight into philosophy for those in related disciplines such as film studies, literature and religion.

NEW

Series: Philosophers on Film

2ND EDITION

On Film Stephen Mulhall, New College, Oxford, UK Series: Thinking in Action In this significantly expanded new edition of his acclaimed exploration of the four Alien movies, Stephen Mulhall adds several new chapters on Steven Spielberg’s Mission: Impossible trilogy and Minority Report. The first part of the book discusses the four Alien movies. Mulhall argues that the sexual significance of the aliens themselves, and of Ripley’s resistance to them, takes us deep into the question of what it is to be human. At the heart of the book is a highly original and controversial argument that films themselves can philosophize. Mulhall then applies his interpretative model to another sequence of contemporary Hollywood movies: the Mission: Impossible series. A brand new chapter is devoted to each of the three films in the series, and to other films by the relevant directors that cast light on their individual contribution to it. In this discussion, the nature of television becomes as central a concern as the nature of cinema; and the shift in generic focus from science fiction to thriller also makes room for a detailed reading of Spielberg’s Minority Report.

From Mildred Pierce and Brief Encounter to Raging Bull and In the Mood for Love, this lively and accessible collection explores film culture’s obsession with the past, offering searching and provocative analyses of a wide range of titles.

Series: Philosophers on Film

The Thin Red Line is the third film from acclaimed director Terrence Malick, set during the struggle between American and Japanese forces for Guadalcanal in the South Pacific in World War Two. It is a powerful, enigmatic and complex film that raises important philosophical questions, ranging from the existential and phenomenological to the artistic and technical. This is the first book to explore and address the philosophical aspects of Malick’s film. Opening with a helpful introduction that places the film in context, seven specially commissioned essays go on to examine the following topics:

Film Theory Critical Concepts in Media and Cultural Studies Edited by K.J. Shepherdson, Philip Simpson and Andrew Utterson Series: Critical Concepts in Media and Cultural Studies The last thirty years of the twentieth century saw the establishment of film studies as a major discipline in higher education throughout the world. Not only did film become a subject discipline in its own right, it also became a focus of study within the emergent fields of cultural studies, media studies and gender studies. This period of academic growth coincided with extensive developments in Film Theory. Film’s significance as a social and cultural practice, and as an art form, gained greater emphasis. Theories from a range of disciplines were deployedexamined in the context of film studies. This led not only to the testing and re-appraisal of traditional critical concepts such as realism, genre and narrative, but also to the application of newer theoretical perspectives including semiotics, structuralism and psychoanalysis. 2003: 234x156 Set: 978-0-415-25971-2: £650.00

Screened Out Playing Gay in Hollywood from Edison to Stonewall Richard Barrios Rapacious dykes, self-loathing closet cases, hustlers, ambiguous sophisticates, and sadomasochistic rich kids: most of what America thought it knew about gay people it learned at the movies. A fresh and revelatory look at sexuality in the Great Age of movie making, Screened Out shows how much gay and lesbian lives have shaped the Big Screen. Spanning popular American cinema from the 1900s until today, distinguished film historian Richard Barrios presents a rich, compulsively readable analysis of how Hollywood has used and depicted gays and the mixed signals it has given us: Marlene in a top hat, Cary Grant in a negligee, a pansy cowboy in The Dude Wrangler.

Series: Routledge Critical Introductions to Urbanism and the City Cities and Cinema puts urban theory and cinema studies in dialogue. The book’s first section analyzes three important genres of city films that follow in historical sequence, each associated with a particular city, moving from the city film of the Weimar Republic to the film noir associated with Los Angeles and the image of Paris in the cinema of the French New Wave. The second section discusses socio-historical themes of urban studies, beginning with the relationship of film industries and individual cities, continuing with the portrayal of war torn and divided cities, and ending with the cinematic expression of utopia and dystopia in urban science fiction. The last section negotiates the question of identity and place in a global world, moving from the portrayal of ghettos and barrios to the city as a setting for gay and lesbian desire, to end with the representation of the global city in transnational cinematic practices. The book suggests that modernity links urbanism and cinema. It accounts for the significant changes that city film has undergone through processes of globalization, during which the city has developed from an icon in national cinema to a privileged site for transnational cinematic practices. It is a key text for students and researchers of film studies, urban studies and cultural studies. March 2008: 234x156: 384pp Hb: 978-0-415-36445-4: £85.00 Pb: 978-0-415-36446-1: £21.99

Combining classic and recent essays, it examines key issues such as: • What constitutes film acting? • How is film acting different from stage acting? • How has film acting changed over time?

Clearly divided into an introductory overview and four topic areas, the Reader explores how recent critical thinking has approached queer sexualities in relation to the cinema. The four sections discuss: • authorship – examining the role of sexuality in the work of queer filmmakers such as George Cukor, Dorothy Arzner, Barbara Hammer, and the directors of New Queer Cinema • forms – exploring how genres such as the horror film, the musical, film noir, and the animated film construct queer cinematic spaces • camp – looking at how this reception strategy and mode of textual production, initially practised by pre-Stonewall queers, retains its critical charge even in contemporary mainstream popular culture • reception – considering three specific historical case-studies of how queer fans have interacted with media texts from Judy Garland to Star Trek.

AMERICAN FILM

Contemporary Hollywood Cinema

Neil LaBute

Naming the Nation in US Film

Edited by Steve Neale and Murray Smith

A Casebook

Edited by Mandy Merck, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

Contemporary Hollywood Cinema brings together leading international cinema scholars to explore the technology, institutions, film makers and movies of contemporary American film making.

Gerald C. Wood, Carson-Newman College, USA

At a time when the expanded projection of US political, military, economic and cultural power draws intensified global concern, understanding how that country understands itself seems more important than ever. This collection of new critical essays tackles this old problem in a new way, by examining some of the hundreds of US films that announce themselves as titularly ’American’. From early travelogues to contemporary comedies, national nomination has been an abiding characteristic of American motion pictures, heading the work of Porter, Guy-Blaché, DeMille, Capra, Sternberg, Vidor, Minnelli and Mankiewicz. More recently, George Lucas, Paul Schrader, John Landis and Edward James Olmos have made their own contributions to Hollywood’s Americana. What does this national branding signify? Which versions of Americanism are valorized, and which marginalized or excluded? Out of which social and historical contexts do they emerge, and for and by whom are they constructed? Edited by Mandy Merck, the collection contains detailed analyses of such films as The Vanishing American, American Madness, An American in Paris, American Graffiti, American Gigolo, American Pie, and many more. March 2007: 234x156: 328pp Hb: 978-0-415-37495-8: £65.00 Pb: 978-0-415-37496-5: £18.99

Selling Entertainment in a Global Media Age Paul Grainge, University of Nottingham, UK From the growth in merchandizing and product placement to the rise of the movie franchize, branding has become central to the modern blockbuster economy. In a wide-ranging analysis focusing on companies such as Disney, Dolby, Paramount, New Line and, in particular, Warner Bros., Brand Hollywood provides the first sustained examination of the will-to-brand in the contemporary movie business. Outlining changes in the marketing and media environment during the 1990s and 2000s, Paul Grainge explores how the logic of branding has propelled specific kinds of approach to the status and selling of film. Analyzing the practice of branding, the poetics of corporate logos, and the industrial politics surrounding the development of branded texts, properties and spaces – including franchises ranging from Looney Tunes to Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter to The Matrix – Grainge considers the relation of branding to the emergent principle of ‘total entertainment’. Employing an interdisciplinary method drawn from film studies, cultural studies and advertising and media studies, Brand Hollywood demonstrates the complexities of selling entertainment in the global media moment, providing a fresh and engaging perspective on branding’s significance for commercial film and the industrial culture from which it is produced.

The Persistence of Whiteness Race and Contemporary Hollywood Cinema Edited by Daniel Bernardi, Arizona State University, USA The Persistence of Whiteness investigates the representation and narration of race in contemporary Hollywood cinema. Ideologies of class, ethnicity, gender, nation and sexuality are central concerns as are the growth of the business of filmmaking. Focusing on representations of Black, Asian, Jewish, Latina/o and Native Americans identities, this collection also shows how whiteness is a fact everywhere in contemporary Hollywood cinema, crossing audiences, authors, genres, studios and styles.

Blaxploitation Films of the 1970s Blackness and Genre Novotny Lawrence, Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, USA Series: Studies in African American History and Culture During the early years of the motion picture industry, black performers were often depicted as shuckin’ and jivin’ caricatures. Specifically, black males were portrayed as toms, coons and bucks, while the mammy and tragic mulatto archetypes circumscribed black femininity. This misrepresentation began to change in the 1950s and 1960s when performers such as Dorothy Dandridge and Sidney Poitier were cast in more positive roles. These performers paved the way for the black exploitation or the blaxploitation movement, which began in 1970 and flourished until 1975. The movement is characterized by films that feature a black hero or heroine, black supporting characters, a predominately black urban setting, a display of black sexuality, excessive violence, and a contemporary rhythm and blues soundtrack. Blaxploitation films were made across varying genres, but the questionable elements of some of the pictures caused them to be referred to as ’blaxploitation’ films with little or no regard given to their generic categorization. This book examines how Cotton Comes to Harlem (1970), Blacula (1972), The Mack (1973), and Cleopatra Jones (1973), can be classified within the detective, horror, gangster, and cop action genres, respectively, and illustrates the manner in which the inclusion of ’blackness’ represents a significant revision to the aforementioned genres.

British Horror Cinema

Edited by Robin Griffiths, University of Gloucestershire, UK

Edited by Steve Chibnall and Julian Petley Going beyond the Hammer, this book investigates a wealth of horror filmmaking in Britain from early chillers like The Ghoul and Dark Eyes of London to acknowledged classics such as Peeping Tom and The Wicker Man.

British Queer Cinema draws together a diverse range of innovative new essays that explore, for the first time, the provocative history of lesbian, gay and queer representation in British cinema. From the early years of ‘Pre-Gay’ film, through to the social upheaval of post-war ‘permissiveness’, Gay Liberation and the ‘post-AIDS’ queer generation, contributors examine the shifting and complex nature of queer identity, desire and spectatorship across a number of classical and contemporary British popular film genres and traditions. Through case studies of key works such as The Killing of Sister George, Prick Up Your Ears and Beautiful Thing, a reappraisal of the films of Anthony Asquith, Terence Davies and Derek Jarman, to the ‘queerness’ of the heritage film, the homoerotic ‘New Wave’, or the star performances of Dirk Bogarde, Beryl Reid and Stephen Fry, this timely collection maps the relationship between contemporary queer sexuality and its socio-historical, national and critical contexts.

The contributors explore the characteristics that cause readers to attach the moniker ’chick’ to a particular book and what, if anything, distinguishes the category of chick lit from the works of Jane Austen on one end and Harlequin romance novels on the other. They critique the genre from a range of critical perspectives, considering its conflicted relationship with feminism and postfeminism, heterosexual romance, body image, and consumerism.

Edited by Suzanne Ferriss, Nova Southeastern University, USA and Mallory Young, Tarleton State University, USA From An Affair to Remember to Legally Blonde, ’chick flicks’ have long been both championed and vilified by women and men, scholars and popular audiences. Like other forms of ’chick culture,’ which the editors define as a group of mostly American and British popular culture media forms focused primarily on twenty- to thirtysomething, middle-class – and frequently college-educated – women, chick flicks have been accused of reinscribing traditional attitudes and reactionary roles for women. On the other hand, they have been embraced as pleasurable and potentially liberating entertainments, assisting women in negotiating the challenges of contemporary life.

The Documentary Handbook Peter Lee-Wright, Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK Series: Media Practice From the cinematic releases of Michael Moore to the low-budget Video Nation and from educational works to Big Brother, The Documentary Handbook takes a thematic approach to documentary, including chapters for all the myriad forms we watch today. The book charts the evolution of documentary from screen art to core television genre, its metamorphosis into many different types of factual TV programme and its current emergence in forms of new media.

A companion to the successful anthology Chick Lit: The New Woman’s Fiction, this edited volume consists of eleven original essays, prefaced by an introduction situating chick flicks within the larger context of chick culture as well as women’s cinema. The essays consider chick flicks from a variety of angles, touching on issues of film history, female sexuality (heterosexual and homosexual), femininity, female friendship, age, race, ethnicity, class, consumerism, spectatorship, pleasure and gender definition. An afterword by feminist film theorist Karen Hollinger considers the chick flick’s transformation from the woman’s films of the ’40s to the friendship films of the ’80s and those of the ’return to the classics’ trend of the ’90s, while highlighting the value of the volume’s contributions to contemporary debates and sketching possibilities for further study.

Masculinity in Middle Eastern Literature and Film

National Cinemas Series

Homeless at Home

Series Editor: Susan Hayward, University of Exeter, UK

Inga Scharf, German National Academic Foundation, Germany

NEW

Series: Routledge Advances in Film Studies

2ND EDITION

Nation and Identity in the New German Cinema investigates the construction of national identity in films of the New German Cinema using – for the first time – an explicitly cultural studies methodology. Specifically, Scharf’s investigation is concerned with national identity constructions in West German film 1961–1989. According to Scharf’s cultural studies (rather than a film studies) approach, film has to be situated within a wider social context in order to be addressed, rather than articulated simply as a work of art, which needs to be analyzed for its own sake. Moreover, the national and the cinematic realm are conceptualized as imaginary spaces which overlap and constructively interpenetrate one another through complex narrative processes.

German National Cinema is the first comprehensive history of German film from its origins to the present. In this new edition, Sabine Hake discusses film-making in economic, political, social, and cultural terms, and considers the contribution of Germany’s most popular films to changing definitions of genre, authorship, and film form. The book traces the central role of cinema in the nation’s turbulent history from the Wilhelmine Empire to the Berlin Republic, with special attention paid to the competing demands of film as art, entertainment, and propaganda. Hake also explores the centrality of genre films and the star system to the development of a filmic imaginary.

NEW

The essays in this volume provide a space for rethinking current theory on gender and masculinity, linking local issues – including representations of desire and male sexuality in Islam, current political conditions in the Middle East, and the suicide bomber phenomenon – to broader issues germane to gender studies.

Brazilian National Cinema Lisa Shaw, University of Liverpool, UK and Stephanie Dennison, Leeds University, UK Brazilian cinema is one of the most influential national cinemas in Latin America and this wide-ranging study traces the evolution of Brazilian film from the silent era to the present day, including detailed studies of more recent international box-office hits, such as Central Station (1998) and City of God (2002).

David Bordwell, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA The Cinema of Eisenstein is David Bordwell’s comprehensive analysis of the films of Sergei Eisenstein, arguably the key figure in the entire history of film. The director of such classics as Potemkin, Ivan the Terrible, October, Strike, and Alexander Nevsky, Eisenstein theorized montage, presented Soviet realism to the world, and mastered the concept of film epic. Comprehensive, authoritative, and illustrated throughout, this classic work deserves to be on the shelf of every serious student of cinema. 2005: 246x174: 344pp Pb: 978-0-415-97365-6: £15.99

Brazilian National Cinema gives due importance to traditionally overlooked aspects of Brazilian cinema, such as popular genres, ranging from musical comedies (the chanchada) to soft-core porn films (the pornochanchada) and horror films, and also provides a fresh approach to the internationally acclaimed avant-garde Cinema Novo of the 1960s. Lisa Shaw and Stephanie Dennison apply recent theories on stardom, particularly relating to issues of ethnicity, race and gender, to both well-known Brazilian performers, such as Carmen Miranda and Sonia Braga, and lesser known domestic icons, such as the Afro-Brazilian comic actor, Grande Otelo (Big Othello), and the uberblonde children’s TV and film star, and media mogul, Xuxa.

Mexican National Cinema

2ND EDITION

South African National Cinema

Andrea Noble

French National Cinema From Amores Perros and Y Tu Mama Tambien, this book delves into the development of Mexican cinema from the intense cultural nationalism of the Mexican Revolution, through the ’Golden Age’ of the 1930s and 1940s and the ’nuevo cine’ of the 1960s, to the renaissance in Mexican cinema in the 1990s.

Jacqueline Maingard, University of Bristol, UK South African National Cinema examines how cinema in South Africa represents national identities, particularly with regard to race. This significant and unique contribution establishes interrelationships between South African cinema and key points in South Africa’s history, showing cinema figures in the making, entrenching and undoing of apartheid. This study spans the twentieth century and beyond through detailed analyses of selected films, beginning with De Voortrekkers (1916) through to Mapantsula (1988) and films produced post apartheid, including Drum (2004), Tsotsi (2005) and Zulu Love Letter (2004).

Chinese National Cinema Yingjin Zhang

Illustrated throughout with excellent visual examples, this cinema history will be of value to film scholars and historians, as well as to practitioners in South Africa today.

What does it mean to be ’Chinese’? This controversial question has sparked off a never-ending process of image-making in Chinese and Chinese-speaking communities throughout the twentieth century. This introduction to Chinese national cinema, written for students by a leading scholar, covers three ’Chinas’: mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. It traces the formation, negotiation and problematization of the national on the Chinese screen over ninety years. Historical and comparative perspectives bring out the parallel developments in the three Chinas, while critical analysis explores thematic and stylistic changes over time.

Jacqueline Maingard discusses how cinema reproduced and constructed a white national identity, taking readers through cinema’s role in building white Afrikaner nationalism in the 1930s and 1940s. She then moves to examine film culture and modernity in the development of black audiences from the 1920s to the 1950s, especially in a group of films that includes Jim Comes to Joburg (1949) and Come Back, Africa (1959). Jacqueline Maingard also considers the effects of the apartheid state’s film subsidy system in the 1960s and 1970s and focuses on cinema against apartheid in the 1980s. She reflects upon shifting national cinema policies following the first democratic election in 1994 and how it became possible for the first time to imagine an inclusive national film culture.

Nordic National Cinemas Edited by Gunnar Iverson, Astrid Soderbergh Widding and Tytti Soila

Sarah Street With films as diverse as Bhaji on the Beach, The Dam Busters, Trainspotting, The Draughtsman’s Contract, Prick Up Your Ears, Ratcatcher and This Is England, British cinema has produced wide-ranging notions of British culture, identity and nationhood. British National Cinema is a comprehensive introduction to the British film industry within an economic, political and social context. Describing the development of the British film industry, from the Lumière brothers’ first screening in London in 1896 through to the dominance of Hollywood and the severe financial crises which affected Goldcrest, Handmade Films and Palace Pictures in the late 1980s and 1990s, and the formation of the UK Film Council, Sarah Street explores the relationship between British cinema and British society. Using the notions of ’official’ and ’unofficial’ cinema, the author demonstrates how British cinema has been both ’respectable’ and ’disreputable’ according to the prevailing notions of what constitutes good cinema.

Reality TV

It’s Not TV

Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy

Factual Entertainment and Television Audiences

Watching HBO in the Post-Television Era

Selling Black Entertainment Television

Annette Hill

Edited by Marc Leverette, Brian L. Ott and Cara Louise Buckley, all at Colorado State University, USA

Beretta E. Smith-Shomade, University of Arizona, USA Launched in 1980, cable network Black Entertainment Television (BET) has helped make blackness visible and profitable at levels never seen prior in the TV industry. In 2000, BET was sold by founder Robert L. Johnson, a former cable lobbyist, to media giant Viacom for 2.33 billion dollars.

Since going on the air in 1972, HBO has continually attempted to redefine television as we know it. Today, pay television (and HBO in particular) is positioned as an alternative to network offerings, consistently regarded as the premier site for what has come to be called ’quality television,’ hailed critically as well as by audiences. This book argues that HBO, as part of the leading edge of television, is at the centre of television studies’ interests in market positioning, style, content, technology, and political economy. Each essay focuses on a specific key term in television studies, drawing on a particular aspect of the ’HBO effect’ to explore new avenues by which we can write and think about what is happening in the current television climate from radical changes in broadcasting technology to shifts in viewing habits in the wake of DVR, on-demand digital cable services, and DVDs, for example. By taking a number of approaches and focusing on a number of key critical terms, this book will enable students to familiarize themselves with the vocabulary of a burgeoning field, while at once seeing these approaches put into practice via the case studies of popular programs including The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and Sex and the City. By identifying HBO not simply as a channel, rather examining it as a phenomenon within the larger televisual context – at the height of its popularity and success – this collection is taking the pulse of contemporary culture in order to consider how television is created and consumed in the information age. It’s Not TV gives readers a space wherein they will find sustained investigations and varied responses to one of the most important sites of cultural production today. April 2008: 234x156: 256pp Hb: 978-0-415-96037-3: £60.00 Pb: 978-0-415-96038-0: £16.99

This book explores the legacy of BET: what the network has provided to the larger US television economy, and, more specifically, to its target African-American demographic. The book examines whether the company has fulfilled its stated goals and implied obligation to African-American communities. Has it changed the way African-Americans see themselves and the way others see them? Does the financial success of the network – secured in large part via the proliferation of images deemed offensive and problematic by many black communities – come at the expense of its African-American audience? This book fills a major gap in black television scholarship and should find a sizeable audience in both media studies and African-American studies.

Among those aspects of television studies covered in this comprehensive and up-to-date guide are:

Audiences and News, Documentary and Reality Genres

• theoretical perspectives which have shaped the study of television – Marxism; semiology; feminism

Annette Hill, University of Westminster, UK Addressing the wide range of programmes and formats from news, to documentary, to popular factual genres, Annette Hill’s new book examines the ways viewers navigate their way through a busy, noisy and constantly changing factual television environment.

Popular Comedy and English Cultural Identity Andy Medhurst, University of Sussex, UK Crammed full of contemporary comedy examples and house-hold names, from the music hall tradition to contemporary sitcoms, Andy Medhurst considers how English comedy reflects national concerns with class, race, gender and sexuality and traces the recurrence of themes and structures. Examining popular English comedies and comedians in the twentieth century, ranging from the Carry On films to the work of Mike Leigh and contemporary sitcoms such as The Royle Family, and from George Formby to Alan Bennett and Roy ’Chubby’ Brown, the book argues that comedy plays a pivotal role in the construction of cultural identity.

Restyling Factual TV addresses the wide range of programmes that fall within the category of ’factuality’, from politics, to natural history, to reality entertainment. Based on research with audiences of factual TV, primarily in Sweden and the UK, but with reference to other countries such as the US, this book tackles issues such as legitimacy, ethics and value in contemporary news and current affairs, documentary and reality programming.

• concepts which have shaped the study of television – narrative; representation; bias

This book provides an in-depth study of those American families and individuals who opt not to watch television, exploring the reasons behind their choices, discussing their beliefs about television, and examining the current role of television in the American family. Author Marina Krcmar answers several questions in this volume: what is television? Who are those people that reject it? What are their reasons for doing so? How do they believe their lves are different because of this choice? What impact does this choice have on media research?

Medhurst presents case studies of comic traditions and representations, and examines key figures in English comic history, including Mike Leigh, Alan Bennett and Victoria Wood.

Television and Public Policy

How Repeats Invented American Television

Change and Continuity in an Era of Global Liberalization

Derek Kompare

Inside the Biggest Show on Television Andrew C. Billings, Clemson University, USA

Edited by David Ward, Centre for Media Policy and Development, London, UK The significant changes that have swept the television industry over the last two decades, most notably a shift to deregulation in broadcast media, prompt a discussion on how to ensure that meaningful content is available to the viewer. Television and Public Policy analyzes the current state of television systems in a selected group of countries by exploring the political, economic, and technological factors that have shaped the sector in such a short span of time. Consequently, by positioning the television sector within issues of media policy and the regulatory framework, the book questions what these trends mean for television, and the historical, political, and cultural role in our societies. Television and Public Policy distinguishes itself in several ways: • it is a global project in its comparative scope and subject area. Contributors represent countries including Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, India, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States

Series: Routledge Critical Studies in Sport No sporting event has a wider scope than an Olympic telecast. With this international reach comes great power and potential impact on many societies – a power that many critics claim is being misused. This is the first academic text to explore TV sports media’s output from this ’behind the scenes’ perspective including the first scholarly interviews with the influential US broadcasters and producers and sports media professionals. This unique text examines how NBC does (or doesn’t) construct its coverage with identity issues in mind. Interviews with key media personnel and analysis of the telecast processes before, during and after the Olympics provide the basis for introducing media and cultural studies theory and discussion of sports media in modern society more generally.

Hitch Your Antenna to the Stars Early Television and Broadcast Stardom Susan Murray Hitch Your Antenna to the Stars is the first cultural and industrial history of early television stardom. Susan Murray argues that television stars were central to the growth and development of American broadcasting. They were used not only to promote programs and the sale of television sets and advertised consumer goods, but also to established network identities. Through profiles of well-known performers including Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Jackie Gleason, and Lucille Ball, she shows how the television industry gave birth to the idea of TV stars and established a system of star production and management notably different from the Hollywood star system of the studio era. 2005: 234x156: 240pp Hb: 978-0-415-97130-0: £55.00 Pb: 978-0-415-97131-7: £20.99

Series: Routledge Research in Cultural and Media Studies Despite the work that has been done on the power of visual communication in general, and about the social influence of television in particular, television’s relationship with reality is still something of a black box. Even today, the convention that the screen functions as a window on reality structures much of the production and reception of televisual narratives. But as reality ought to become history at one point, what are we to do with such windows on the past?

Series: Communication and Society Television entertainment rules supreme, one of the world’s most important disseminators of information, ideas, and amusement. More than a parade of little figures in a box, it is deeply embedded in everyday life, in how we think, what we think and care about, and who we think and care about it with. But is television entertainment art? Why do so many love it and so many hate or fear it? Does it offer a window to the world, or images of a fake world? How is it political and how does it address us as citizens? What powers does it hold, and what powers do we have over it? Or, for that matter, what is television these days, in an era of rapidly developing technologies, media platforms, and globalization? Television Entertainment addresses these and other key questions that we regularly ask, or should ask, offering a lively and dynamic, thematically based overview that offers examples from recent and current television, including Lost, reality television, The Sopranos, The Simpsons, political satire, Grey’s Anatomy, The West Wing, soaps, and 24.
