Selling war to America : from the Spanish American War to the global war on terror by Eugene Secunda( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the end of the 19th century, the relative skillfulness of the U.S. government's propaganda efforts have largely determined the American public's willingness to support the wars the United States has waged. The job of informing and persuading America to support its war efforts has become increasingly more challenging as media technologies, like the Internet and the instant global coverage of television news, reach into every American home. Selling War to America begins its examination with the U.S. government's campaign to instigate a war with Spain and ends with a review of the methods the government is using now to encourage support for the War Against Terrorism
Introduction to the history of communication : evolutions & revolutions by Terence P Moran( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Introduction to the History of Communication: Evolutions and Revolutions provides a comprehensive overview of how human communication has changed and is changing. Focusing on the evolutions and revolutions of six key changes in the history of communication--becoming human; creating writing; developing print; capturing the image; harnessing electricity; and exploring cybernetics--the author reveals how communication was generated, stored, and shared. This ecological approach provides a comprehensive understanding of the key variables that underlie each of these great evolutions-revolutions in human communication. Designed as an introduction for history of communication classes, the text examines the past, attempting to identify the key dynamics of change in these human, technical, semiotic, social, political, economic, and cultural structures, in order to better understand the present and prepare for possible future developments."--Jacket
McSorley's New York( Visual )

3 editions published between 1984 and 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

McSorley's Old Ale House, at 15 East 7th Street, is the oldest bar in New York City. Founded in 1854 by John McSorley, an Irish immigrant, its character and appearance has changed very little over the ensuing years. Perhaps the biggest change came in 1970 when it finally admitted women. This film is an affectionate look at the history and lore of McSorley's and its intimate links with the history of its neighborhood and that of New York City as a whole
An analysis of the relationship between the Sherman Antitrust Act and the development of American network television by Sara-Ann Bermont( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to examine whether a law conceived and enacted prior to the development of a new technology can be used effectively to regulate that technology. For the purpose of this study, the Sherman Antitrust Act and the American network broadcast television industry were chosen as a suitable law and medium, respectively. The time parameters for this examination span the years from 1934 to 1979, framed by the enactment of the Communications Act of 1934 and the subsequent proposals which reflect the need for its rewrite as outlined in the Options Papers of 1977
Political advertising on television: A critical analysis of the debate in the United States between the determinist and the minimalist perspectives by Salvatore Joseph Fallica( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can these scholars and journalists be looking at and discussing the same phenomenon? There appears to be a need to clarify exactly what these different perspectives identify as the central problem and how each tends to examine that problem. This study proposes to conduct a critical analysis of this debate as a first step to try to clarify the bewildering array of past and present research and possibly clear the path for a fundamentally new approach to the field of political advertising on television
The image of Egypt in "The New York Times," 1956, 1967, 1979 by Sonia A Guirguis( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Results for Time Period I indicated that the image of Egypt and U.S./Egypt government relations were tilted toward the negative before the event, and tilted toward the positive after the event. Only during the event did the image of Egypt neither parallel nor entirely deviate from U.S./Egypt government relations. The image of Egypt was balanced, while U.S./Egypt government relations were tilted toward the positive. In Time Period II, they were both negative before, during and after the event; and in Time Period III, they were both positive before, during and after the event. Even the themes affecting U.S./Egypt government relations were mostly reflected in the image of Egypt. The results lend support for the political theory of the presentation of news, since changes in the projected image of Egypt were, to a large extent, similar to changes in U.S./Egypt government relations
The Miss America Pageant: A comparative structural analysis of the pre- and post-television event by Armando Riverol( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined television's role as an agent of change by comparing the structure of the pre-television Miss America Pageant (1921-1953) with that of the post-television Miss America Pageant (1954-1984). To determine which changes found between the two time periods were due to the influence of television, the data were analyzed using the Model for Analyzing the Structure of Television (MAST). This model was developed by the investigator based on claims made by Edmund Carpenter, Edward Jay Epstein, Neil Postman, and Michael Real about the structure of television
The reported use of videotape in American corporations, 1956-1980, a media ecology analysis by Eugene Marlow( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study used articles from generally recognized journals and trade publications in the areas of video production, audio-visual communications, corporate communications, public relations, training and human resources development, as well as general consumer publications for analysis. Articles were chosen if they dealt with a specific use of videotape by one corporation for either internal or external purposes
Universalism versus cultural relativism in film storytelling: A comparative analysis of storytelling practice in popular films of India and the United States by Eva Kolbusz-Kijne( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study's focus was on one of the major concerns of media studies: the nature of the relationship between the dominant media of communication and the cultures into which these media have been absorbed
Modes of storytelling : A rhetorical analysis of film and television adaptations of Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Hound of the Baskervilles" and Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina" by Beata Jurkowska-Krupa( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Previous research concerned specifically with similarities and differences in storytelling techniques among various media focused either on the orality and literacy shift, or on the structural differences between print and film or print and television. This study focused on the differences in storytelling modes between film and television adaptations of print
The ethical orientation of advertising executives: The relationship among ethical climate, sex role identity, and selected demographic and job variables by Diane Rutkow Persky( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Over 92% of the respondents reported an androgynous sex role type, and female advertising executives scored higher than male executives on ethical orientation, confirming previous research. Of the five Ethical Climates identified by Victor and Cullen (Professional, Rules, Caring, Instrumental, Independence), three showed some relationship to Ethical Orientation. The Instrumental climate was perceived more often by first line and middle level managers. The Caring climate was perceived more often by advertising executives in smaller agencies of 100 employees or less. There was a significant relationship between Management Level and the perception of the Caring climate. Senior level advertising executives and first line managers perceived the Caring climate more frequently than did middle level managers. The findings also indicated that older (60 years plus), more experienced employees perceived the Independence climate more than other age groups
Television's impact on selected traditional male institutions in Greece by Demetrios Michael Gemelos( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study argues that the impact of conventional television on the Greek coffeehouse and the tavern--traditional male institutions of socialization and leisure--is notably limited due to prevalent culturally-specific behaviors of Greek men who continue demonstrating adherence to their traditional lifestyle
The history of the videocassette recorder in America from 1964 to 1988: An Ellulian analysis by Eugene Secunda( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study traced the origins of the videocassette recorder from its initial development in the U.S. in the 1950s through the subsequent preemption of the technology by Japanese manufacturers while American companies assumed the role of distributors and marketers of Japanese products. It then provided a brief history of U.S. network television viewing patterns from 1964 to 1988 and revealed how they were changed when the videocassette recorder started being used by viewers to gain control of the medium which had held them captive to its programming schedules for more than 30 years. It further described the national television-advertiser community from 1964 to 1988, discussing how the advertisers' ability to use television networks as an efficient conveyance for distribution of their commercials started being adversely affected. This effect was caused by users of videocassette recorders and other alternative media abandoning network television as their primary source of entertainment, a finding supported by the results of a survey of the leading 100 national television advertisers
Interpersonal skills of highly successful business owners in the graphic communications industry by Joseph P Truncale( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The findings of the present study suggest that there is a need for new quantitative research instruments to be developed that can better measure transformational leadership as it relates to communication competence
The U.S. Supreme Court and obscenity an examination of media-message relationships in legal opinions by Jerry M Goldberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation attempts to determine whether McLuhan's aphorism, "The medium is the message," has become part of the culture when applied to the legal pornography-obscenity debate. The research is based upon two assumptions: (1) that the law, as an important part of the culture, provides a means of determining the attitudes of the culture in which it operates; and (2) that the U.S. Supreme Court is the final arbiter of the meaning of American law
Captains and corporals: A critical analysis of the debate in the United States between the neo-Marxist and the reflective perspectives on advertising by Man Kong Lum( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study concluded that, except for a few basic similarities, the two perspectives differed in most of the categories examined. These categories included the two perspectives' conceptions, assumptions, and arguments about the interrelationship between modern advertising (as a social institution, as a form of artistic expression, and as a marketing tool) and the rise of a consumer culture and mass consumption in the context of advanced capitalism or market economy. Except for detailed footnotes or endnotes and bibliographical data, no other standard, formal verification method or mechanism proposed or used by scholars from the two perspectives were found. The study concluded that no mutually agreed-upon criteria could be used to verify or refute the arguments put forth by the two perspectives. It was suggested that a genuine resolution of the debate between the two perspectives appeared to be remote

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Through analysis of the transcripts certain patterns emerged. In general, the findings indicated that the cultural and ethnic backgrounds of the sample population did influence how the narrative constructed by The Planet Earth exhibit was understood by the visitors. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
The Jerusalem Post, an analysis of the relationship between ownership and editorial control by Aliza Savir( Book )

Advertising and corporate mergers: An examination of editorial coverage of the 1895--1904 industrial "trust" consolidation movement in contemporary advertising-trade publications by Stewart Alter( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The 1895-1904 "trust" consolidation period reshaped American industry in ways that had significant implications for the practice of advertising as it was then developing. In order to evaluate these influences, this study explored the impact of these consolidations directly as they related to advertising by examining the coverage of these trusts as this appeared in the major advertising-trade journals at the time. These trade publications have served as a key research source for advertising historians, frequently serving as evidence to explain how advertising was conceptualized and practiced. The five publications that were reviewed, particularly during the peak consolidation years of 1898-1902, were Advertising Experience, Fame, The National Advertiser, Printers' Ink, and Profitable Advertising
