by Dennis K. Davis,Stanley J. Baran

This new edition of Baran and Davis's successful text provides a comprehensive, historically based, introduction to mass communication theory. Clearly written with examples, graphics, and other materials to illustrate key theories, this edition--now streamlined to increase accessibility--traces the emergence of two main bodies of mass communication theory: social/behavioral and critical/cultural. The authors emphasize that media theories are human creations that typically are intended to address specific problems or issues. The Second Edition includes new coverage of the Internet, as well as many updated examples.

Got this text for a graduate Communication Theory class. The concepts are explained in a straightforward manner, and it is applicable to the real world.
Great book for all mass communication students. The book has tons of mass communication theories that could help all students to get knowledge about mass communication theories. I highly recommend to buy this book
The book is in pretty good shape. I wasn't expecting the highlights in the book but I don't mind this time around. I usually don't like highlighted textbooks because I like to write in them myself. But overall everything is good. The book even came in before expected, and I really like that.
I got this book for a Master's Level course. It was a good and interesting read to see how the groundwork of communication theory was structured into what we know today. Definately reccomend it for introductory communication courses.
This book isn't that bad. For a paperback that is maybe an inch thick, it delves itno the stereotype that text books are expensive. the book si easy to read although a bit dry at times. I do not feel the book is worth $70 or more, which is too bad.
