Encyclopedia of political communication by Lynda Lee Kaid( )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Political communication began with the earliest studies of democratic discourse by Aristotle and Plato. However, modern political communication relies on an interdisciplinary base, which draws on concepts from communication, political science, journalism, sociology, psychology, history, rhetoric, and others. This two-volume resource considers political communication from a broad interdisciplinary perspective, encompassing the many different roles that communication plays in political processes in the United States and around the world. The Encyclopedia of Political Communication discusses the major theoretical approaches to the field, including direct and limited effects theories, agenda-setting theories, sociological theories, framing and priming theories, and other past and present conceptualizations. With nearly 600 entries, this resource pays considerable attention to important political messages such as political speeches, televised political advertising, political posters and print advertising, televised political debates, and Internet sites. The audiences for political communications are also central, necessitating concentration on citizen reactions to political messages, how the general public and voters in democratic systems respond to political messages, and the effects of all types of media and message types. Key Features: Encompasses several channels of political communication including interpersonal and public communication, radio, television, newspapers, and the World Wide Web Provides news media coverage and journalistic analysis of politics, political issues, political figures, and political institutions Concentrates on the field of political communication since the middle of the 20th century Emphasizes political communication from the point of view of the United States, but there is substantial and important research and scholarship on political communication in international contexts Considers the role of communication in governing, incorporating communication activities that influence the operation of executive, legislative, and judicial bodies, political parties, interest groups, political action committees, and other participants in political processes Key Themes: Biographies Books, Films, Journals, Television Democracy, Democratization Education and Nonprofit Organizations Elections Government Operations and Institutions Legal and Regulatory Media Events Media Outlets and Programs Role of Media in Political Systems News Media Coverage of Politics, Political Affairs Theoretical Approaches Types of Political Media Political Attitudes Political Campaigns Political Events Political Groups and Organizations Political Issues Political Journalism Theoretical Concepts Women in Politics The Encyclopedia of Political Communication is designed for libraries, undergraduates, and members of the public with an interest in political affairs. Media and political professionals, as well as government officials, lobbyists, and participants in independent political organizations, will find these volumes useful in developing a better understanding of how the media and communication function in political settings."
The SAGE handbook of political advertising by Lynda Lee Kaid( )

18 editions published in 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 1,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The SAGE Handbook of Political Advertising provides a comprehensive view of the role political advertising plays in democracies around the world. Editors Lynda Lee Kaid and Christina Holtz-Bacha, along with an international group of contributors, examine the differences as well as the similarities of political advertising in established and evolving democratic governments. Key Features: Offers an international perspective: This handbook examines the political television advertising process that has evolved in democracies around the world, including countries in Asia, Europe, Australia, Africa, Latin America, and North America. In addition, a comparative overview addresses the effects of political advertising on the voters and the systems of which it is a part. Provides comprehensive coverage: For each country presented, an analysis is given of its political advertising history, its cultural implications, the political and regulatory systems related to political advertising, the effects of media system structures, and the effects of new technologies. Includes examples from recent elections: The role specific candidate- or party-controlled television plays in a specific region's electoral process is examined. Original research on recent elections confirms the expanding significance of this form of political communication. This is an excellent resource for media professionals and practicing journalists, as well as a welcome addition to any academic library. It can also be used as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on Political Advertising in the fields of Political Science, Communication, Broadcasting, Journalism, and International Relations."
The professionalisation of political communication by Ralph M Negrine( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Has the communication of politics become professionalised? Who are the 'professionals' and what part do they play in the political process?

These, and related questions, about the changing nature of practices in political communication are explored in this book that looks at developments across a number of different countries
Die Massenmedien im Wahlkampf die Bundestagswahl 2002 by Christina Holtz-Bacha( )

33 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in German and English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

​Noch während der Bundestagswahlkampf 2013 im Gange war, wurde er verschiedentlich als flau beurteilt. Die Kampagne ließ Highlights und Innovationen vermissen. Die Forschung zur Wahlkampfkommunikation gewinnt daher ihren Wert vor allem in der Langzeitperspektive, die es möglich macht zu prüfen, ob die oftmals diagnostizierten Trends moderner Kampagnen wie Professionalisierung und Personalisierung zutreffen und ob Verschiebungen in der Rolle und der Bedeutung der klassischen Medien auf der einen und Internet sowie sozialen Netzwerken auf der anderen Seite eintreten. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes a

Stereotype? Frauen und Männer in der Werbung by Christina Holtz-Bacha( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in German and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frauen sind jung, schön und schlank. Männer sind harte Jungs, die Tölpel in der Küche oder sehen einfach nur gut aus. Die Klage darüber, dass die Werbung Frauen und Männer auf solche Stereotypen reduziert, ist ebenso alt wie die Befürchtungen, dass diese Stereotypen gesellschaftliche Auswirkungen haben. Gelten sie heute noch? Dieses Buch zieht Bilanz nach rund 50 Jahren Forschung zu Werbung und Geschlechterstereo-typen und legt neue Ergebnisse aus der Analyse von Werbung vor sowie darüber, wie Rezipientinnen und Rezipienten mit solcher Werbung umgehen
Twitter and elections around the world : campaigning in 140 characters or less by Richard Davis( Book )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twitter already has become an important electoral communication tool between candidates, parties and their specific constituencies. No serious candidate campaign ignores Twitter, while political party organizations utilize Twitter to communicate with partisans, reinforce supporters, and mobilize voters. Whereas much scholarship to date has focused primarily on Twitter's political usage in the United States, there still remain many questions about the political uses and effects of Twitter in a global context. Does Twitter effect how reporters interact with candidates or even with each other? Does Twitter increase voter participation? Who is tweeting about elections? Why do people use Twitter in electoral contexts? Which type of candidate is more likely to use Twitter and why? Do parties differ in their use of Twitter, and why? Does Twitter increase candidate-voter interaction? Is Twitter shaping elections in various system contexts, and if so how? What is the influence of system context on Twitter use by parties, candidates, reporters, and voters? Eloquently combining theory and practice, established and rising scholars in the field of political communication have been brought together to provide an essential overview of the influence of Twitter on elections in a comparative perspective. Readers of this book will not only learn everything there is to know about this specific influence of Twitter, but more broadly how to approach the study of various online tools in general.

17 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This timely publication offers a fresh scholarly assessment of political advertising across the EU, as well as an insight into differing political and regulatory systems related to political advertising in the individual member states. With a detailed focus on the images and communication styles that characterised the 2014 European Parliament election campaign, this edited collection evaluates political advertising across the EU using empirical data to compare and contrast styles and approaches in different members.

This book will appeal to researchers and students of political communication, political science, history, European studies as well as candidates and campaign workers who want a more comprehensive understanding of the representation of Europe in political adverts at the 2014 elections.--
Frauen, Politik und Medien by Christina Holtz-Bacha( )

7 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wenngleich der Anteil von Frauen in der deutschen Politik noch längst nicht ihrem Anteil an der Bevölkerung entspricht, haben sie sich mittlerweile doch auch auf den höheren Ebenen der Politik etabliert. Erledigen sich damit auch die Klagen über die Art und Weise, wie die Medien über Politikerinnen berichten? Führt die stärkere Sichtbarkeit von Frauen in der Politik auch zu einer besonderen Ansprache von Wählerinnen? Dieses Buch fasst Untersuchungen aus verschiedenen Ländern, in denen Frauen höchste Staatsämter innehaben, zusammen und prüft, wie die Medien mit ihnen umgehen und wie sich Wahlkampagnen von und für Frauen gestalten
Political populism : a handbook( )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All over Europe, we are currently witnessing populist political parties and figures enjoying success in elections and mobilising the electorate against the supposed elite. The most recent example of this political development is the Brexit campaign in the UK, which demonstrated that populists can exert considerable influence over political decisions. Populist parties are also enjoying election successes outside Europe; this phenomenon has been occurring in the US and Latin America for a long time, for example. The new Handbook offers a comprehensive theoretical and empirical introduction to populist politics in Europe, the Americas and beyond. It focuses on explaining the phenomenon of populism as a consequence of the crisis of the representational system and aims to highlight the controversies and limits of current academic research and debate on the subject"--

Medienpolitik für Europa by Christina Holtz-Bacha( )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in German and Undetermined and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Europäische Gemeinschaft hat im Laufe der Jahre deutlich an Einfluss auf die Medienpolitik in den EU-Mitgliedstaaten gewonnen. Zunächst richteten sich die Hoffnungen auf eine integrierende Funktion vor allem des Fernsehens für das gemeinsame Europa. Die Vollendung des europäischen Binnenmarktes drängte diesen kulturellen Aspekt indessen in den Hintergrund. Mit der Verabschiedung der Fernsehrichtlinie im Jahr 1989 trat statt dessen die ökonomische Perspektive hervor, die seitdem die europäische Medienpolitik beherrscht, aber zu Interessenkonflikten mit den Mitgliedsländern geführt hat. Mit dem vorrangig ökonomischen Blick auf die Medien setzt die Europäische Gemeinschaft auch einen anderen Akzent als der Europarat, der ebenfalls medienpolitisch aktiv ist, jedoch mit geringerer Verbindlichkeit als die EG. "Medienpolitik für Europa" verfolgt chronologisch und problemorientiert die Entwicklung der europäischen Medienpolitik und diskutiert die Aussichten auf die Entstehung einer europäischen Öffentlichkeit

Wissenschaft mit Wirkung : Beiträge zu Journalismus- und Medienwirkungsforschung ; Festschrift für Klaus Schönbach by Christina Holtz-Bacha( )

8 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Band vereint 22 Beiträge von Kollegen und Freunden, Schülern und Weggefährten Klaus Schönbachs. Den 60. Geburtstag des international hoch angesehenen Kommunikationswissenschaftlers nehmen die Autoren zum Anlass, aktuelle Fragen der Medienwirkungs- und der Journalismusforschung aufzugreifen. Die Antworten, zu denen sie gelangen, dokumentieren in ihrer Vielfalt die Leistungsfähigkeit, Zeitnähe und gesellschaftliche Relevanz des Faches Kommunikationswissenschaft. Das Spektrum reicht von den Anforderungen an eine künftige Journalistenausbildung bis zu Datenspuren im Internet als Herausforderung für den Journalismus, vom Umgang der Medien mit Ungewissheit bis zur Messung von Meinungsmacht. Dass sich die Autoren dabei immer wieder auf die Impulse, die theoretische Pionierarbeit und die gedankliche Exzellenz Schönbachs beziehen, kommt nicht von ungefähr: Wie kaum ein anderer hat der heute in Amsterdam lehrende Forscher dem Fach vor allem auf diesen beiden Gebieten Profil und Qualität verliehen. Klaus Schönbach hat in über drei Jahrzehnten wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse ebenso unermüdlich wie rhetorisch brillant in die Gesellschaft vermittelt. Sein Name steht für Wissenschaft mit Wirkung
Fussball - Fernsehen - Politik by Christina Holtz-Bacha( )

8 editions published in 2006 in German and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zwischen Fußball, Fernsehen und Politik bestehen vielfältige Zusammenhänge und Wechselwirkungen. Das Zusammenfallen von Fußballweltmeisterschaft und Bundestagswahl 1990, 1994, 1998 und 2002 hat dieses Verhältnis besonders deutlich hervortreten lassen, und es wäre auch 2006 so gewesen, hätte es nicht 2005 vorgezogene Neuwahlen gegeben. Dieses Buch nimmt die Weltmeisterschaft in Deutschland zum Anlass, die Beziehungen im Dreieck von Fußball - Fernsehen - Politik genauer zu beleuchten. Die Beiträge untersuchen u. a. den Fußball als Gegenstand medienpolitischer Kontroversen, die Rolle des Fußballs im Fernsehen und für das Fernsehen, die Integrationsfunktion von internationalen Fußballwettbewerben, Fußballer als "Journalisten", den Einfluss von Erfolgen der Nationalelf auf die (politische) Stimmung der Wählerschaft sowie Fußballer in der Rolle von Prominenten
Warum nicht gleich? wie die Medien mit Frauen in der Politik umgehen by Christina Holtz-Bacha( )

7 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lange wurde darüber geklagt, dass Politikerinnen in den Medien unzureichend Beachtung finden - und wenn über sie berichtet wird, spielt ihr Äußeres eine größere Rolle als ihre politische Arbeit. Mittlerweile sind Frauen in der Politik häufiger vertreten als noch vor einigen Jahren und sie befinden sich dort vermehrt auch auf Positionen, die als Männerdomänen galten. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes gehen der Frage nach, ob sich der Umgang der Medien mit Politikerinnen geändert hat, wie heute über Frauen in der Politik berichtet wird, ob es immer noch Grund zur Klage gibt und - wenn das so ist - woran das liegt

Routledge handbook of political advertising by Christina Holtz-Bacha( )

12 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Handbook provides the most comprehensive overview of the role of electoral advertising on television and new forms of advertising in countries from all parts of the world currently available. Thematic chapters address advertising effects, negative ads, the perspective of practitioners and gender role. Country chapters summarize research on issues including political and electoral systems; history of ads; the content of ads; reception and effects of ads; regulation of political advertising on television and the Internet; financing political advertising; and prospects for the future. The Handbook confirms that candidates spend the major part of their campaign budget on television advertising. The US enjoys a special situation with almost no restrictions on electoral advertising whereas other countries have regulation for the time, amount and sometimes even the content of electoral advertising or they do not allow television advertising at all. The role that television advertising plays in elections is dependent on the political, the electoral and the media context and can generally be regarded as a reflection of the political culture of a country. The Internet is relatively unregulated and is the channel of the future for political advertising in many countries. --
