Το European Media: Structures, Policies and Identity προσφέρει μία σαφή και ακριβή περιγραφή των δομών, των δυναμικών και των παραμέτρων του μεταβαλλόμενου προσώπου των Μέσων Επικοινωνίας στην Ευρώπη. Παρέχει μία επίκαιρη και διαφωτιστική εκτίμηση των ζητημάτων που συνδέονται με την ανάπτυξη των Νέων Μέσων στην Ευρώπη και διερευνά το διάλογο σχετικά με το ρόλο των Μέσων Επικοινωνίας στο σχηματισμό μιας Ευρωπαϊκής δημόσιας σφαίρας και μιας Ευρωπαϊκής ταυτότητας.

Το βιβλίο υποστηρίζει ότι η Ευρώπη προσφέρει ένα ιδανικό πλαίσιο για να μελετηθούν οι αλληλεπιδράσεις ανάμεσα στις παγκόσμιες, περιφερειακές και εθνικές διαδικασίες του σύγχρονου επικοινωνιακού περιβάλλοντος. Τα κεφάλαια του βιβλίου εξετάζουν: τη μεταβαλλόμενη δομή των Ευρωπαϊκών Μέσων, την ανάπτυξη των Νέων Μέσων, τον Εξευρωπαϊσμό του επικοινωνιακού πεδίου στην Γηραιά Ήπειρο, τις προκλήσεις για το περιεχόμενο, και τα ακροατήρια. Ιδιαίτερη έμφαση δίνεται στο μετασχηματισμό της πολιτικής επικοινωνίας στην Ευρώπη και στη φερόμενη ανάδυση μιας Ευρωπαϊκής δημόσιας σφαίρας και ταυτότητας.

Το European Media: Structures, Policies and Identity είναι ένα πολύτιμο εργαλείο για ερευνητές και φοιτητές που ασχολούνται με τα Μέσα Επικοινωνίας και τις Ευρωπαϊκές σπουδές.

 

Reviews

 

An excellent overview and reference on some of the big shifts that characterise the evolving media scene in Europe.'
LSE Review of Books

 

'Commendable for its breadth and wealth of information. Fulfilling their laudable and ambitious aim to provide a synthesis of the development of the European media, a European public sphere and European identity, the authors offer a succinct historical account of the structures and dynamics of the media in Europe and an excellent overview of debates and academic research on the emergence of a European public sphere and European identity.'
European Journal of Communication

 

'Throughout the book the authors skillfully synthesize the main policy developments, supporting facts and figures drawn from market research, and audience research data, with relevant and up-to-date academic literature. Unlike some examinations of the EU, the book gives an objective account without making any ideological assumptions about the extent to which the EU and its involvement in the media and communications industries is a good or bad thing.'
Journalism Practice

 

'By focusing on the EU as a complex, transnational political entity, the authors go a step beyond the current state of the research on this topic. Indeed, their work signals whether, in the future, it would be adequate to analyze any national media system without taking the EU framework into account.'
Television and New Media

 

"This is a useful pan-European view of how the processes of globalism, the integration of member states and the rapid development of new technology impact on the EU's intentions in all aspects of communication."
Media International Australia

 

'This book is about the important challenge that faces European citizens today: Is a process of Europeanization possible? Do European media exist? More precisely, can they exist? Assuming "that Europe continues to offer the best place for examining global media processes", Papathanassopoulos and Negrine discuss in depth the homogenization process, offering evidence and data as to the structure of the European media systems, the role of new technologies and the policies that the European Union is implementing to facilitate the integration process. An indispensable book for all those who are interested in knowing where the European mass media are going.'
Paolo Mancini,
Universita di Perugia

 


'This book is commendable in that it covers the entire breadth of the European communications policy agenda and links it to more theoretical discussions of the public sphere, making it an easily accessible one-stop shop for the study of European communications.'
Alison Harcourt,
University of Exeter

 


'Two veteran watchers of the evolving European media landscape have put together a comprehensive and coherent account succinctly and clearly. It is especially strong in historical and political economic sense, but above all informative, relevant and as up to date as can ever be achieved at one moment. Strongly recommended as a text.'
Dennis McQuail, Emeritus Professor,
University of Amsterdam

 


'When two distinguished professors from different poles of the continent combine to produce a study of European media then the prospects are inviting. The product here amply fulfills the promise, Stylianos Papathanassopoulos and Ralph Negrine bringing to readers deep knowledge of similarities and differences across European nations as well as an understanding of common problems and opportunities. Above all, Europe matters in the globalizing world we inhabit, and this book reveals how and why.'
Frank Webster,
