'News Culture' is an introduction to the forms, practices, institutions and audiences of journalism. It begins with a historical consideration of the rise of 'objective' reporting in newspaper, radio and televisual journalism. It explores the way news is produced, its textual conventions, and its negotiation by the reader, listener or viewer as part of everyday life. New updates for this edition: * an expanded introduction to signal a fresh approach to the subject * a new chapter, between chapters 1 and 2 to examine the new and the public sphere. This will include news on the internet and coverage of the political economy. * Expanded discussion of online news across the text as a whole, especially increasing coverage in chapter 8 * Updates of research, references, examples and illustrations to bring the text up to date.

Modernity and Postmodern Culturecritically assesses claims made about the 'postmodernization' of culture and society and explores the complex interplay between the modern and the postmodern in an increasingly ‘globalized world’. The author argues that although culture may be 'postmodern' in terms of art, entertainment and everyday life, modernity still exists and is pervasive. The second edition is revised throughout, updating the literature and viewing international events through a modernist/postmodernist gaze. The theories of Baudrillard, Beck, Castells, Giddens, Jameson, Lyotard and others are discussed and specific issues concerning architecture, theme parks, screen culture, science, technology and the environment are examined. Topics include: Postmodern architecture and the hyperreality of Disney How poststructuralist theory questions modern rationality and reason The relations between postmodern culture, global capitalism and the technological changes brought about by electronics and computing The network society The book is key reading for students on courses in cultural politics, cultural theory, popular culture and sociology.

Media, Culture & Society "The book is extremely well-written - ideal as a student text, yet also at the forefront of innovation." International Review of Cultural Studies "A thoroughly worthwhile read and an excellent addition to the growing literature on media sport" Sport, Education and Society Sport, Culture and the Media was the first book to analyse comprehensively two of the most powerful cultural forces of our times: sport and media.

The second part, "Unmaking the Media Sports Text", concentrates on different media forms - television, still photography, news reporting, film, live commentary, creative sports writing and new media sports technologies.This is a key textbook for undergraduate studies in culture and media, sociology, sport and leisure studies, communication, race, ethnicity and gender.

"a fascinating, thorough and expertly argued discussion of the modes and practices of cultural policy in an increasingly globalized and neoliberal world." European Journal of Communication Rethinking Cultural Policy addresses issues concerning culture, economy and power in the age of new-liberal globalization. It examines how public cultural policies have been rationalized in the past and how they are being rethought. Arguing that the study of culture and policy should not be confined to prevailing governmental agendas, the book offers a distinctive and independent analysis of cultural policy. The book examines a wide range of issues in cultural policy and blends a close reading of key theories with case studies. Topics covered include: Branding culture and exploitation The state, market and civil society How visitor attractions such as London's Millennium Dome are used for national aggrandizement and corporate business purposes Cultural development, diversity and ecological tourism in poorer parts of the world This is the ideal introduction to contemporary cultural policy for undergraduate students in culture and media studies, sociology of culture, politics, arts administration and cultural management courses, as well as postgraduates and researchers.
