Now in its fifth edition, this pioneering volume of Routledge’s ‘Key Guides' series offers clear explanations of key concepts, showing where they came from, what they are used for and why they provoke discussion or disagreement.

The new edition is extensively revised to keep pace with rapidly evolving developments in communication, culture and media, providing topical and authoritative guidance to transformational shifts from broadcast to digital technologies, national to global media and disciplinary to diverse knowledge. It includes:

  • Nearly 250 entries, covering what and how to study across this multi-disciplinary field;
  • 50 new entries: from algorithm and assemblage, dance and data, to woke and worldbuilding;
  • Updated references with 500 items and suggestions for further reading;
  • Revisions, updates and examples throughout.

For students and seasoned scholars alike, Communication, Cultural and Media Studies is an invaluable resource in an ever-changing landscape.
