"We have Holt and Perren's superb book to help us move forward. Media Industries will be of great interest to students and scholars considering an industrial turn in their research. The book can be successfully integrated into existing undergraduate and graduate film and television classes. It can also be taught as the centerpiece of a course we will hopefully see cropping up more and more: media industry studies."(Television & New Media, March 2010)

Bringing together newly commissioned essays by leading scholars in film, media, communication, sociology and cultural studies, Media Industries constructs a unique road map for industrial analysis of film, radio, television, advertising and new media. Collectively, these 21 essays provide a crucial resource for those encountering the study of the media industries for the first time as well as for those interested in conducting cutting-edge research in this burgeoning field. Rich explanations of key terms and foundational ideas vividly illustrate the dynamic transformations taking place across varied national, regional and international contexts.

Smart, thorough, and comprehensive, this collection is a welcome resource for all who study and teach about media industries." Amanda D. Lotz, University of Michigan and author of The Television Will Be Revolutionized "Holt and Perren's collection of original, engaging, and vital scholarship on the theory, history and 'practice' of media industries is truly illuminating and groundbreaking. No other work speaks to the study of media industries in such a thoughtful and comprehensive manner. For both scholars and 'laymen' interested in the media industries, it's a joy to read."
