The Media in America : a history by Lang Shi( Book )

28 editions published between 1989 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Media in America is the leading textbook in the field of mass communication history. Previous editions have been used at as many schools as all the other textbooks combined. The reason for its success is, we believe, simply the high standard it uses for the study of history. For example, it is the only textbook that relies mainly on primary sources. The 9th edition retains the qualities that have made previous editions so successful, but it adds some features that make it even better. You will find substantial revisions in several chapters, updated and enlarged bibliographies for all chapters, material on recent major events, and additional informative illustrations. -- Amazon.com

Perspectives on mass communication history by W. David Sloan( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique volume is based on the philosophy that the teaching of history should emphasize critical thinking and attempt to involve the student intellectually, rather than simply provide names, dates, and places to memorize. The book approaches history not as a cut-and-dried recitation of a collection of facts but as multifaceted discipline. In examining the various perspectives historians have provided, the author brings a vitality to the study of history that students normally do not gain. The text is comprised of 24 historiographical essays, each of which discusses the major interpretation

Great editorials by W. David Sloan( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 1997 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Editorial and opinion examples (and background on their authors) from Revolutionary, Constitutional, Abolitionist through Civil Rights periods are terrific for teaching and student learning in graduate and undergraduate courses in editorial and opinion writing. The examples are good for study, analysis and for oral reading. The interwoven material on the development of the newspaper and the editorial writing form and purpose from early U.S. to temporary times is also instructive. More is needed, though, from the contemporary era. --Carolyn L. Bennett, Ph. D., Professor of Journalism, Rowan University

The media and religion in American history( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most common misconceptions about the history of mass communication is that the media and religion have always been natural enemies.
