    Random House Australia 2015; US$ 23.24

    Racked by public distrust, cowed by government surveillance and powerful corporations, the mainstream media is in crisis.

Drawing on personal interviews and his background... more...

  • Social Media and the Good Lifeby Mark Y. Herring

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2015; US$ 29.95

    Social media has accelerated communication, expanded business horizons and connected millions of individuals who otherwise would never have met.

Social networking sites are used by scammers, criminals and sexual predators, and many people now self-diagnose illness based on... more...

  • Sociological Amnesiaby Mr Eric Royal Lybeck; Professor Alex Law; Dr Stjepan Mestrovic

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 119.95

    The history of sociology overwhelmingly focuses on ?the winners? from the classical ?canon? - Marx, Durkheim, and Weber - to today?s most celebrated sociologists. This book strikingly demonstrates that restricting sociology in this way impoverishes it as a form of historically reflexive knowledge and obscures the processes and struggles of sociology?s... more...

  • Global Mangaby Dr Casey Brienza

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 109.95

    Outside Japan, the term ?manga? usually refers to comics originally published in Japan. Yet nowadays many publications labelled ?manga? are not translations of Japanese works but rather have been wholly conceived and created elsewhere. These comics, although often derided and dismissed as ?fake manga?, represent an important but understudied global... more...

  • European Visionsby Janelle Blankenship; Tobias Nagl

    transcript 2015; US$ 40.90

    This volume examines the challenges cinemas in small European countries have faced since 1989.

  • Local Journalismby Rasmus Kleis Nielsen

    I.B.Tauris 2015; US$ 14.95

    For more than a century, local journalism has been taken almost for granted. But the twenty-first century has brought major challenges. The newspaper industry that has historically provided most local coverage is in decline and it is not yet clear whether digital media will sustain new forms of local journalism. This book provides an international... more...
