Editorial Reviews

Review

Media Reception Studies could be subtitled, ‘Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Reception Studies, But Were Afraid to Ask.’ Staiger presents a robust, sophisticated, and eminently readable account that will enable specialists and students alike to grasp the depth and breadth of one of the most significant areas of inquiry in the field today.“
-Barbara Klinger,Indiana University



“I have been waiting for just this book. At last, someone with a deep background in reception research has brought her wisdom to bear on the state of the field. Media Reception Studies has a wonderful range, and is so clearly and incisively written that everyone from undergraduates to senior academics can get great benefit from it.”
-Martin Barker, University of Wales, Aberystwyth



“Staiger writes that her purpose is to provide a map of the field of reception studies, and in this she succeeds. This stuyd reveals how much ahs been done in this area and how the study of the effects of media content has evolved. The "selective" bibliography is in fact extensive,a nd the index is comoprehensive.”

1 of 4 people found the following review helpful By John R. Sumser on April 23, 2014
Format: Paperback
The problem is that Janet Staiger cannot write. She cannot write sentences; she cannot write paragraphs. The second pragraph of the first substantive chapter begins, "Although from the beginnings of textual analysis the interpretation of texts mattered . . . the potential effects of an engagement with a text might have psychological and social consequences. When this was one-to-one, simple punishment of wicked behavior seemed feasible." Huh? The first sentence makes no sense and the second sentence hops in out of nowhere. I cannot ask my students to read a book that is so poorly written.
