Toward a Political Economy of Culture: Capitalism and Communication in the Twenty-First Century

by Andrew Calabrese (Editor), Colin Sparks (Editor)

Several of the most important and influential political economists of communication working today explore a rich mix of topics and issues that link work, policy studies, and research and theory about the public sphere to the heritage of political economy. Familiar but still exceedingly important topics covered include market structures and media concentration, regulation and policy, technological impacts on particular media sectors, information poverty, and media access. The book also features several new topics for future political economy study.
