Power Without Responsibility is a classic introduction to the history, sociology, theory and politics of the media in Britain.
It is an essential guide, both for students and teachers of media and communication studies, and for all those involved in the production and consumption of the media.
The new edition has been substantially revised to bring it right up-to-date with developments in the media industry, new media technologies and changes in the political and academic debates surrounding media policy. In this new edition, the authors consider:
* whether we are on the threshold of a new communications revolution
* the role of global media empires
* the rise of video, cable and satellite
* the global information society and contradictions in media policy
* the BBC and broadcasting at the end of the 1990s
* the evolving relationship of the press and the Conservative party.
Assessing the press and broadcasting at a time of radical change, the authors suggest a manifesto for media reform.

Synopsis:

Power Without Responsibility is a classic and authoritative introduction to the history, sociology, theory and politics of students and teachers of media and communication studies and is an essential guide for all those involved in the production and consumption of the media. The new edition has been substantially revised to bring it right up-to-date with new developments in the media industry, new media technologies and changes in the political and academic debated surrounding media policy. The authors ask if the rise of global media moguls, such as Rupert Murdoch, have undermined the historic ties between the press and the Conservative party, question whether we are actually on the threshold of a new communications revolution and consider the left-right divide in current media politics. New chapters discuss the rise of video, cable and satellite, the BBC and broadcasting in the 1990s, the global information society and contradictions in media policy. Assessing the press and broadcasting at a tme of radical change, the authors suggest a manifesto for media reform.
