Communication Power

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=472226&cjsku=472226...
We live in the midst of a revolution in communication technologies that affects the way in which people feel, think, and behave. The media have become the space where power strategies are played out. In the current technological context mass communication goes beyond traditional media and includes the Internet and mobile communication. In this wide-ranging and powerful book, Manuel Castells analyses the transformation of the global media industry by this revolution in communication technologies. He argues that a new communication system, mass self-communication, has emerged, and power relationships have been profoundly modified by the emergence of this new communication environment. Created in the commons of the Internet this communication can be locally based, but globally connected. It is built through messaging, socialnetworks sites, and blogging, and is now being used by the millions around the world who have access to the Internet.Drawing on a wide range of social and psychological theories, Castells presents original research on political processes and social movements, including the misinformation of the American public on the Iraq War, the global environmental movement to prevent climate change, the control of information in China and Russia, and Internet-based political campaigns, such as the Obama campaign in the United States. On the basis of these case studies he proposes a new theory of power in the informationage based on the management of communication networksJustly celebrated for his analysis of the network society, Castells here builds on that work, offering a well grounded and immensely challenging picture of communication and power in the 21st century. This is a book for anyone who wants to understand the dynamics and character of the modern world.

Global Communication

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1386436&cjsku=1386436...
This volume interrogates what "global" means in the context of "communication," and who benefits from global communication practices and industries. Emerging scholars contribute their unique perspectives in communication scholarship, charting innovative directions for research that connects empirical evidence with pressing questions of social significance. This critical reflection leads to considering problems that result from the way global communication becomes mobilized, in the practice of journalism and development as well as the ICT industry. Global Communication defines the term "globalization," through understanding the cultural geography of global, regional, national, and local media. Critical evaluations of media production, distribution, and consumption practices, within cultural contexts, offer insights into how people "mediate" the global. Chapters draw attention to communications in Latin America, the Arab World, and South Asia, complicating territorial boundaries and exploring how local audience and industry practices work within global as well as local configurations.

Interpersonal Communication

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1838944&cjsku=1838944...
Interpersonal Communication emphasizes the significance of reciprocal influence processes in face-to-face interactions. This book examines the various aspects of human interaction. Organized into 10 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the techniques that salesmen use to obtain compliance from customers. This text then examines certain situations of deliberate interpersonal manipulation, which reveals that internalized components of personal identity and self-esteem are more vulnerable to face-to-face communication. Other chapters consider the distinction between two basically different functions of human communications, namely, the functions of representation and of presentation. This book discusses as well the forms of social address that provides interesting examples of how the presentational function of communication expresses itself by means of a linguistic medium. The final chapter deals with the fundamental assumptions on which one's investigation depends. This book is a valuable resource for psychologists and social psychologists. Readers interested in the study of sociolinguistics will also find this book useful.
