"Ben Bagdikian has written the first great media book of the twenty-first century. The New Media Monopoly will provide a roadmap to understanding how we got here and where we need to go to make matters better." —Robert McChesney, author of Rich Media, Poor Democracy "No book on the media has proved as influential to our understanding of the dangers of corporate consolidation to democracy and the marketplace of ideas; this new edition builds on those works and surpasses them." —Eric Alterman, author of What Liberal Media? Praise for the First Edition of The Media Monopoly: "A groundbreaking work that charts a historical shift in the orientation of the majority of America's communications media—further away from the needs of the individual and closer to those of big business." —Bruce Manuel, Christian Science Monitor When the first edition of The Media Monopoly was published in 1983, critics called Ben Bagdikian's warnings about the chilling effects of corporate ownership and mass advertising on the nation's news "alarmist." Since then, the number of corporations controlling most of America's daily newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations, book publishers, and movie companies has dwindled from fifty to ten to five. The most respected critique of modern mass media ever issued is now published in a completely updated and revised twentieth anniversary edition.

Activism: using a series of case studies this section explores how user communities with special access needs are ensuring they are not denied access to the emerging new media world. 3. Access: provides an overview of areas where theintroduction of new media has created debate about which social and cultural groups will benefit and how new media policy should be developed. 4. Participation: the emerging world of new media is inseparably linked to the commercialization of the internet and of mobile communications. This sectionexamines the implications of the resulting commodification of information for the way audience formations are structured and operate.

From the Publisher: The New Class Society provides a fresh, lucid, and compelling exploration of U.S. class structure, social inequities, and the fading American Dream. This third edition extends the authors' distributional model of class analysis and class-based power networks model developed in earlier editions. The narrative has been revised with new, recent examples from today's news, social issues, and global developments. The book demonstrates how and why, over the last thirty years, class inequalities in the United States have been widened, hardened, and legitimized.

This up-to-date, accessible textbook presents a comprehensive overview of the history, present and future prospects of French media, and considers the successes and failures of the French media policy from 1945 to the present day. Raymond Kuhn investigates the politics and economics of the press, radio and television, from the days of state intervention and monopoly provision to current trends towards deregulation and pluralism, and discusses the importance of the `new media' of cable and satellite broadcasting. Kuhn explores in particular the changing inter-relationship between media and state, as ownership and indirect interference decline while the state remains a key part of the media landscape in its policy making and regulatory roles. The Media in France is essential reading for all students of French, European and Media Studies.

Bagdikian's book spans the human gamut, from the time of his birth when he was almost left for dead during a massacre of Armenians in Turkey to his becoming an editor of a leading American daily and a dean of the School of Journalism at Berkeley. As a child, Bagdikian lived in two worlds - the world of his puritanical clergyman-father, whose parish was in a small New England town, and the world of his truck-driver uncle and his grandfather who made bathtub beer during Prohibition. Bagdikian had to attend church regularly but he made money for college tuition on a boardwalk with friends who were pitchmen and gamblers. As a professional journalist, Bagdikian continued his insider-outsider roles - his double vision - as one of the country's leading journalists and as a leading critic of his own profession. An enemy of secrecy in government, as editor at the Washington Post Bagdikian obtained and was instrumental in overcoming governmental censorship in publishing the secret "Pentagon Papers" on the Vietnam War.
