"Clearly written and interesting to read, this book makes good use of the history of famous studies and scholars, covers the waterfront of mass communication topics, and is backed up by a large number of references. . . I would use this text in my Sociology of Mass Communication course."(Everett M. Rodgers) Vom Verlag:
Reviewing the images and meanings of the mass-mediated world Gabriel Weimann examines the symbolic environment, in which reality and fiction are almost inseperable. Through discussion of mass-mediated images of people, cultures, war, love, sex, death, community and identity, he demonstrates that there is often a large gap between reality and the reconstruction of `realities' as communicated by the mass media.
