Over the last decade, political economy has grown rapidly as a specialist area of research and teaching within communications and media studies and is now established as a core element in university programs around the world. The Handbook of Political Economy of Communications offers students and scholars a comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date, and accessible overview of key areas and debates in the field. This contemporary guide to political economics of communication combines authoritative overviews of core ideas with new case study materials and the best of contemporary theorization and research.

“Political economy has roared back into town. Terms like 'net neutrality,' 'creative labor,' 'the precariat,' and 'global capital' are in every critic's vocabulary--or should be. This Handbook's editors, all leading figures, have assembled an equally distinguished group of authors to lead the charge.” - Toby Miller, author of Makeover Nation: The United States of Reinvention “This is an excellent book that moves from heritage sites to new destinations, and from the old standards to innovative research.” - James Curran, Director, Goldsmiths Leverhulme Media Research Centre, University of London “The power of the communications media to shape people’s cultural, political and social lives is immense. We should never lose sight of the bases to their political and economic potency, and the political economy of communications is a crucial intellectual tradition in both analysing the media, and in giving sound critical foundations to challenge and intervention. In this important collection the editors have brought together an authoritative and diverse collection of original essays that reaffirm the importance of this tradition and make an irreplaceable contribution to it.” - Peter Golding, Northumbria University “This is not only a welcome package of scholarship but also a timely reminder of the vitality of critical political economy, serving to keep the research tradition straight and wide under pressures of marketization and globalization.” - Kaarle Nordenstreng, Tampere University
