Understanding the Media introduces key theoretical issues in media analysis, and encourages students to use case studies and to examine their own personal media use and exposure. Devereux applies a model of media analysis that gives equal weighting to the production, content and reception of media texts. Devereux uses examples from both `old' and `new' media, and draws upon illustrative materials from diverse geographical territories. Each chapter contains concise summaries, exercises, extracts from experts in the field, model exam and essay questions, as well as directions for further reading and research. This practical dimension to Understanding the Media will ensure that the book appeals to both teachers and students of the 21st century media.
