This book was very difficult to understand especially with words that were jargon to the general population such as myself. You really have to read each sentence quite a few times to make even a little bit of sense of it, and even then, it is still usually confusing. It would have been a better book if it was aimed more towards someone who has little or no knowledge of mass media or to include a background section or a glossary of complex terms.
I've been reading this book to use as a text for an upper-level mass communications course that I will be teaching for our university's program in England this fall. It's perfect for that course, which is titled, like the book, Mass Media and Society. I searched diligently to find a text that was as current as possible and published outside the U.S., and I'm glad I found this one. It's very readable for a text and interesting, yet appropriately challenging for the students. I recommend it highly.
