This book is part of a small project by Andy Schmitz to archive copies of all the books which were made available online from a specific publisher at the end of 2012 in order to preserve their status as Creative Commons-licensed textbooks and therefore remain free to access and use. Schmitz explains why there are no authors, publisher names or descriptions: The books are licensed under the Creative Commons by-nc-sa 3.0 license, which typically requires attributing the source of the work (author, title and URI). Initially, then, these books were attributed to the authors and publisher who made them available. However, in March 2013, I was contacted by the publisher, who, acting as the licensor of the works, asked me to remove the Creative Commons attribution to the original authors and publisher from the collection of books. They also indicated that, in situations where I was required to attribute the work, they wished the works to be attributed to anonymous authors. While I find this turn of events disappointing because it doesn't give the publisher or the original authors very much credit for for making the books available, I have obliged by removing the original attribution I had added for Creative Commons, and by not specifying the publisher's name in my templates for the books. What about the titles? In August 2013, I was contacted again by the publisher, who requested that I remove the books' original titles as well. Under the understanding that the books republished here are a Collection, and that the title in the book URIs could be considered part of the Section 4(d) attribution, I have retitled all of the books hosted in this collection. Care has been taken to ensure that links to the old names in this collection will redirect to the book's new location, and to the same content. Further, the publisher requested that I remove their "corporate trademarks" from the books. I have therefore also replaced the publisher's name with the phrase "Unnamed Publisher" and a link to this page. And the citations? A number of the books in this archive had citations to other books from the publisher, or other resources that the publisher was hosting. As part of the publisher's requests, they asked to have these citations and links removed as well. Because it did not appear as though the removal of the citations was likely to impact the books' usability, where I have found citations to books from the publisher, I have removed those citations as well.

This interdisciplinary collection of essays charts intersections between communication/cultural studies and a variety of emergent emancipatory and liberatory discourses. Every essay attempts, in one way or another, to speak to the following questions: What would a theory of liberation look like that is premised on a communication view of the world? How would such a view expand and even redefine our understanding of liberation? Finally, how would such a view enlarge our understanding of what is collectively, communally, and organizationally possible? In other words, the chapters articulate what can be loosely considered a humanist theory of communication and praxis. The goal is to move beyond discourses of liberation that are grounded in essentionalist assumptions and to move the conversation toward an engaged criticism on cultural and social levels that facilitates and encourages progressive action.This edited collection, thus, has as its goal a theory of human liberation grounded in communication as a resource for social and spiritual transformation. The chapters comprise a mix of conceptual and applied studies that interrogate the communicative practices that naturalize our hierarchical world, reifying and stultifying our moral and political imaginations. As an antidote to this problem, the contributors consider the importance of uncertainly and contingency in the development of human potential.Rather than fearing uncertainty and contingency and allowing that fear to control us, contributors argue that we should find within these conditions the source of our humanity and the strength to question and resist unjust social reifications. When we do this, we will rediscover the power of communication and regain an agency and control over our lives. We then can start the difficult but humanizing process of constructing the world anew. Case study exemplars of this construction, thus, are showcased.

There is a timely and urgent need for a reasoned dialogue reassessing how Marxism can advance the study of human communication and transform the social world in which it is embedded. Indeed, ongoing world-historical events - including the vigorously organized market globalization, the corresponding insurgent global anticorporate movement, and the conflicts engendered by the U.S. invasion of Iraq - have underscored the importance of a thorough critique of global capitalism and its telecommunication technologies and practices. This important new collection, featuring essays by leading scholars and practitioners, provides a much-needed overview and assessment of Marxism's significance to contemporary thinking in communication and media studies. Contributors demonstrate how a Marxist perspective can be usefully applied to specific case studies in communication, providing valuable insights and understandings that are not obtainable using other approaches.

Communication is fundamentally a relational phenomenon. Through communication we create relationships that frame how we perceive and relate to the world and each other. Every relationship sets off different social, political, and epistemological implications and consequences, and possesses the potential to fundamentally change the world. This book presents an emergent definition of communication and demonstrates the promise of this definition for enlarging our understanding and experience of what is possible.Communication is defined in terms of vulnerability. Vulnerability assumes that our humanity is bound up with the humanity of others. This book is about possibility and our own potentiality to create just and humane worlds, and it demonstrates how a new vision of communication studies, by expanding our moral and theoretical imagination, can allow us to look anew at our own potentiality and that of the world.

The development of communication studies has been a lively process of adoption and integration of theoretical constructs from Pragmatism, Critical Theory and Cultural Studies. Critical Communication Studies describes the intellectual and professional forces that have shaped research interests and formed alliances in the pursuit of particular goals. Hanno Hardt reflects on the need to come to terms with the role of history in academic work and locates the intellectual history within the context of competing social theories. The book provides a substantive foundation for understanding the field and will be a major text in all courses dealing with communication history and theory.

This revised edition of a now classic text includes a new introduction by Henry Jenkins, explaining ‘Why Fiske Still Matters’ for today’s students, followed by a discussion between former Fiske students Ron Becker, Elana Levine, Darrell Newton and Pamela Wilson on the theme of ‘Structuralism and Semiotics, Fiske-Style’. Both underline the continuing relevance of this foundational text in communication studies. How can we study communication? What are the main theories and methods of approach? This classic text provides a lucid, accessible introduction to the main authorities in the field of communication studies, aimed at students coming to the subject for the first time. It outlines a range of methods of analysing examples of communication, and describes the theories underpinning them. Thus armed, the reader will be able to tease out the latent cultural meanings in such apparently simple communications as news photos or popular TV programmes, and to see them with new eyes.
