Substantially revised and updated, the sixth edition of the Watson & Hill Dictionary is a key resource for students of all aspects of communication. It provides an aid to the study of interpersonal communication, the theory of communication, media history, and technological development, balancing the specifics of, for example, legislation affecting media performance with the major themes central to most programs of study--audience, cultural interaction through media, globalization and issues surrounding the impact of technology on society, and the nature of ownership and control. The Dictionary of Media & Communication Studies is also accessible to the general reader interested in keeping up with media events and curious to explore some of the subject's fascinating terrain.
