McGraw-Hill Education (UK), Sep 1, 2005 - Social Science - 206 pages
Media Discourses introduces readers to discourse analysis to show how media communication works. Written in a lively style and drawing on examples from contemporary media, it discusses what precisely gets represented in media texts, who gets to do the talking, what knowledge people need to share in order to understand the media and how power relations are reinforced or challenged.
