Dear all,

now that the lists exists, please forgive me for using it for shameless
self-publicity. Inspection copies etc at
http://www.polity.co.uk/book.asp?ref=9780745628417.

Below is Polity's blurb:
----------------------------------------------------
Dear Colleague,

Polity is delighted to announce the publication of 'The Politics of Media
Policy' by Des Freedman.

This new work provides a critical perspective on the dynamics of media
policy in the US and UK and offers a comprehensive guide to some of the
major points of debate in the media today. While many policymakers boast
of the openness and pluralism of their media systems, this book exposes
the commitment to market principles that saturates the media policy
environment and distorts the development and application of democratic
media policies.

Based on interviews with dozens of politicians, regulators, special
advisers, lobbyists and campaigners, The Politics of Media Policy
considers how governments, civil servants and media corporations have
shaped the drawing up of rules concerning a range of issues including:
* Media ownership
* Media content
* Public broadcasting
* Digital television
* Copyright
* Trade agreements affecting the media industries

Reviews

‘Des Freedman has written a wonderful, original and indispensable
introduction to the exploding world of media policy making. It deserves
the attention of students, scholars and citizens everywhere.’
Robert W. McChesney, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

‘Well-written,comprehensive and passionate, this will be a key book on
media policy.’
David Hesmondhalgh, University of Leeds

'For many years, the study of media policy has lacked the thick
description of personal observation. Previous work has either been caught
in the detail of the law, or been distanced by the abstraction of academic
theory. Now we have a book that brings all these important discourses
together, thanks to Des Freedman's fresh, interdisciplinary approach.’
Toby Miller, University of California, Riverside
