Bib #28 The Media & Communications in Australia.

Cunningham, Stuart, and Turner, Graeme, ed. The Media & Communications in Australia. Australia: Allen & Unwin, 2002.

I find this book relevant to my research as it offers a systematic introduction to this dynamic and often bewildering field. It outlines the key media industries, and explains how the new communication technologies are impacting on them. It also provides a thorough overview of the main approaches taken in studying the media. A section of the book explores the thorny issues of media ethics, audiences, youth media and the future of journalism. The types of media and communications available in Australia, is very important for me to know as Australia is a multicultural country, different facets of the culture have different types of exposure to different types of media.
