New edition leaves scope for 'human factor' research
Review of The Media and Communications in Australia, edited by Stuart Cunningham and Graeme Turner (3rd edition)
The Cunningham and Turner reader, once again, has a core of 11 informational chapters updating us on developments in and around mass media, set in a jacket of other chapters describing selected theories of media or media research. At the back there are some 'cultural studies' essays about aspects of prominent media fare over recent years: sports, celebrities, media treatments of the 2005 Cronulla 'riot' are brought out once again.
