Theories, concepts and models are intertwined throughout the chapters challenging students to critically understand and evaluate the role of mass media in society." - Stephanie Goodwin, University of Central Lancashire "In a field whose boundaries are porous and where there is no consensus as to the core concepts, theories and thinkers, Scannell brings certainty to his effort to identify key moments in the history of the study of the media and communication... Essential reading for anyone interested in the historical development of the study of the media in the US and the UK." - Times Higher Education "His account of these major writers and movements is both comprehensive and clearly written, and will be appreciated by students and academics alike… It is the detail of the historical contexts that makes his writing a refreshing look at the history of media and communication in the twentieth century." - Media International Australia Magisterial in scope, Media and Communication traces the historical development of media and communication studies.

«Strictly speaking», James Carey wrote, «there is no history of mass communication research.» This volume is a long-overdue response to Carey’s comment about the field’s ignorance of its own past. The collection includes essays of historiographical self-scrutiny, as well as new histories that trace the field’s institutional evolution and cross-pollination with other academic disciplines. The volume treats the remembered past of mass communication research as crucial terrain where boundaries are marked off and futures plotted. The collection, intended for scholars and advanced graduate students, is an essential compass for the field.
