Personal influence; the part played by people in the flow of mass communications by Elihu Katz( Book )

92 editions published between 1955 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1955, Personal Influence reports the results of a pioneering study conducted in Decatur, Illinois, validating Paul Lazarsfeld's serendipitous discovery that messages from the media may be further mediated by informal "opinion leaders" who intercept, interpret, and diffuse what they see and hear to the personal networks in which they are embedded. This classic volume set the stage for all subsequent studies of the interaction of mass media and interpersonal influence in the making of everyday decisions in public affairs, fashion, movie-going and consumer behavior. The contextualizing essay in Part One dwells on the surprising relevance of primary groups to the flow of mass communication." "In his introduction to this fiftieth-anniversary edition, Elihu Katz discusses the theory and methodology that underlie the Decatur study and evaluates the legacy of his coauthor and mentor, Paul F. Lazarsfeld."--Jacket
Media events : the live broadcasting of history by Daniel Dayan( Book )

52 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in 9 languages and held by 1,200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Constituting a new television genre, live broadcasts of "historic" events have become, in effect, world rituals--high holidays of mass communication. Daniel Dayan and Elihu Katz show us that these media events have the potential for transforming societies as they transfix viewers around the globe. The authors apply this original thesis to public spectacles such as the Olympic Games, Anwar el-Sadat's journey to Jerusalem, the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana, John
Broadcasting in the Third World : promise and performance by Elihu Katz( Book )

25 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in English and German and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Broadcasting has long been considered one of the keys to modernization in the developing world. Able to leap the triple barrier of distance, illiteracy, and apathy, it was seen as a crucial clement in the development of new nations. Recently, however, these expectations have been disappointed by broadcasting's failures to reach the rural masses and the urban unemployed. Broadcasting has also come under attack as serious questions have been raised about its uncritical importation of western culture. Now, in Broadcasting in the Third World, Elihu Katz and George Wedell offer the first complete coverage of the problems and promises of broadcasting in the third world
The Uses of mass communications : current perspectives on gratifications research by Jay G Blumler( Book )

14 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume examine the use of the mass media and explore the findings of the gratifications approach to mass communication research. Part one summaries the achievements in this area of mass media research and proposes an agenda for discussion of the future direction of this research in terms of a set of theoretical, methodological, and substantive issues that need more systematic attention. Part two contains essays which present new empirical evidence in the area of gratifications research. Among these essays are "Gratifications of Television Viewing and Their Correlates for British Children" and "Testing the Validity of Gratification Measures through Political Effects Analysis." The essays in part three contain original analytical arguments to clarify some of the problems posed in the opening overview. Sample essays include "Psychological Motives and Communication Gratification" and "Television as a Functional Alternative to Traditional Sources as Need Satisfaction." (Rb)

Election studies : what's their use? by Elihu Katz( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Academic studies of elections are not in the business of predicting outcomes. They are in the business of explaining them. The best studies treat voting data as raw material with which to explore socio-psychological processes such as individual decision-making and such sources of influence as issues, personality, media, socio-economic background, and party loyalty. The ebb and flow of ideologies and the comparative workings of different political systems are core topics on which election studies shed light. Looking back on more than fifty years of voting research, some of its major practitioners and critics reflect here on what has - and has not - been accomplished."--Jacket
