This book examines the ethical challenges posed by new media formats, technologies and audiences. It considers how these emerging genres and technologies work, how they are reshaping the public sphere, and how the connections between product and viewer, and producer and media consumer, are being changed by new shows and formats. It includes lively chapters from a range of prominent media commentators and practitioners on a diverse range of issues, including reality TV, on-line media, the cash for comment scandal and emerging philosophical approaches to new media ethics. With so much interest in contemporary media forms, and so many heated debates about media ethics, this book will be a must for journalists, media practitioners, watchers and students.

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.

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!

Nick Stone's first explosive mission. Tough, resourceful, ruthless - as an SAS trooper, Nick Stone was one of the best. Now he's back on the streets. After a botched mission, the Regiment no longer want his services. But British Intelligence does - as a deniable operator. It's the dirtiest job in a very, very dirty world. In Washington DC, it's about to get dirtier still. On the apparently routine tail of two terrorists, he discovers the bodies of an ex-SAS officer and his family. Soon he's on the run with the lone survivor of the bloodbath - a seven year old girl. And whilst she can identify the killers, only Stone can keep them at bay - and solve a mystery whose genesis takes him back to the most notorious SAS mission in recent history... Remote Control is the first of Andy McNab's blistering Nick Stone thrillers - bestsellers whose landscape is so compellingly close to the truth that they had to be vetted by the Ministry of Defence, and could only be published as fiction...

What do the TV shows we’re watching tell us about ourselves? Television is the single most powerful and dynamic agent of change in India today. It is also the country’s most popular and accessible form of entertainment. Remote Control examines three kinds of programming—24x7 news, soap operas and reality shows—that have changed Indian television forever, and analyzes how these three genres, while drawing on different sources, are hybridized, indigenized and manage to ultimately project a distinctively Indian identity. Shoma Munshi’s book shows us how everyday reality in India in the twenty-first century shapes television; and how television, in turn, shapes us.
