A new book by Dave Morley, one of the leading authors on the media list. This new book aims to intervene in some of the key debates in the field of media and cultural studies. It is structured into thematic sections addressing questions of postmodernity and postcoloniality; issues for, and the future of, media and cultural studies; theory and methodology; and television as an object of study, and technology. It is quite a wide-ranging collection but the main attraction is the author who is widely published. 8 of the 15 chapters have been published before and 7 will be completely new to this book.
