Comparative Media History is a unique thematic textbook whichintroduces students to the key ideas underpinning mediadevelopment. It is an essential first step to a betterunderstanding of both the media industry today and the way in whichit evolved over time. The textbook compares developments and influences from a broadperspective, highlighting and contrasting different countries,industries and periods of history in order to encourage anunderstanding of cause and effect. In a style which is clear,accessible and provocative, Jane Chapman argues that most of theroots of today's media - even the globalizing impulse - lie in thelate 18th and 19th centuries. The book emphasises continuity andcertain decisive factors such as the social use of technology, thecharacter of the institutions in which it is applied and thepolitical approach of the specific countries involved. The comparative element to this book, both across countries andindustries, will enable students to reflect on key issues in mediastudies, including those of diversity, form, method and choice,both past and present. It will become an essential text for anystudent of the media and its history. For more information about the book and the author, please seewww.janechapman.co.uk
