The ways in which we watch television tell us much about our views of gender, the family and society. Bringing together the leading experts in the field of audience studies, this book investigates how viewers watch television, and what they think about the programmes they see. Originally published in 1989, the book is divided into two sections which discuss some of the theoretical issues at stake and then present case studies of a wide range of viewers: women office workers, Israeli watchers of Dallas, German families, the elderly, and American daytime soap fans. Contributors from Britain, the United States, Western Europe, Australia and Israel offer a wide range of perspectives, from feminism to post-modernism, and from semiotics to Marxism. ‘Together these essays constitute one of the best possible introductions to the leading edge of research into the phenomenon of television.’ Choice

The other is Alan’s wife—associate district attorney, Lauren Crowder—who has just been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Point. Click. Done! What a world this would be if everything worked as easily and efficiently as your TV set's remote control. Today's managers could definitely use such convenience in their day-to-day dealings. Many of them face far too many responsibilities for one person. Traditional "empowerment," allowing support staff to take on some of the overload, often produced less-than-desirable results. Even so, some form of empowerment has become an absolute necessity for maxed-out managers. If you suffer from nagging, stressful management overload... Managing by Remote Control now brings you relief! Peter R. Garber, a manager of teamwork development, offers new concepts and techniques to make empowerment practical. He tells why and how past methods failed-and replaces those with more effective measures. Eventually, your capable support staff will make decisions, and solve problems as if a manager were always present and calling the shots. By comparing his techniques and philosophies to the functions of a TV set's remote control, Garber takes an entertaining and humorous approach to the subject. Even those who would rather watch TV than read a business book will find Managing by Remote Control entertaining-and informative. Don't wait for rerun season-read it soon!

Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things. While we all use remote controls, we understand little about their history or their impact on our daily lives. Caetlin Benson-Allot looks back on the remote control's material and cultural history to explain how such an innocuous media accessory has changed the way we occupy our houses, interact with our families, and experience the world. From the first wired radio remotes of the 1920s to infrared universal remotes, from the homemade TV controllers to the Apple Remote, remote controls shape our media devices and how we live with them. Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in the The Atlantic.
