The second edition of Australia's leading media studies textbook, fully updated and revised

Over the past decade the Australian media has undergone so many changes that most people are bewildered. Yet the media plays a central role in Australian society and we cannot afford to ignore it.

Since it was first published in 1993, The Media In Australia has become the most popular introduction for students, teachers and anyone interested in how the Australian media works. It covers the history and current state of play of the main print and broadcast media as well as chapters on popular music, film, advertising, media analysis and media audiences.

Fully updated and expanded to take recent developments into account, this second edition incorporates new material on magazine publishing, convergence, the effect of new technologies, including electronic publishing and the Internet, and the development of the information society.

Professor Stuart Cunningham is Head of the School of Media and Journalism at Queensland University of Technology. Graeme Turner is Professor of Cultural Studies in the Department of English at the University of Queensland.
