Editorial Reviews


"...Hallin and Mancini's valuable book advances theoretical understanding of Western media. Highly Recommended." D. Niven, Florida Atlantic University, Choice

Book Description

This book proposes a framework for comparative analysis of the relation between the media and the political system. Building on a survey of media institutions in eighteen West European and North American democracies, it identifies the principle dimensions of variation in media systems and the political variables which have shaped their evolution. They go on to identify three major models of media system development, the Polarized Pluralist, Democratic Corporatist and Liberal models to explain why the media have played a different role in politics in each of these systems.

A must read to all media practioners, not only journalists, communication professionals, but anyone involved in the media business. The three models are the basics in comparing and also give the tools for understanding and classying media systems around the globe. A very in depth and well-written book in which not only students, but also prefessionals can understand and relate to their work.
