This remarkable four-volume collection brings together a range of essays at the cutting edge of, communication theory. Selections included provide in-depth theoretical analysis and overviews rather than specific study of phenomena within a given theoretical tradition.
The collection provides academics and students with access to a free-standing body of theoretical work which is applicable to a range of different topics within communications, media and cultural studies. Including a new introduction by Paul Cobley, a chronological table of articles and a full index, it is undoubtedly an exceptional and invaluable research resource.
