In the post-9/11 era, media technologies have become increasingly intertwined with vertical power as airwaves, airports, air space, and orbit have been commandeered to support national security and defense. In this book, Lisa Parks develops the concept of vertical mediation to explore how audiovisual cultures enact and infer power relations far beyond the screen. Focusing on TV news, airport checkpoints, satellite imagery, and drone media, Parks demonstrates how "coverage" makes vertical space intelligible to global publics in new ways and powerfully reveals what is at stake in controlling it.

The growing connections between media, culture and religion are increasingly evident in contemporary society, but until now have rarely been theoretically linked. The contributors to this volume effectively combine these areas into a coherent whole. The issues they examine include: the decline of religious institutions during the late twentieth century; the increasing autonomy and individualized practice of religion; and the surge of media and media-based icons that are often imbued with religious qualities, and the ensuing effect on cultural practices.

Who creates the cultural landscape we experience? When we watch the evening news, are we receiving unrevised information straight from the day's headlines or is it positioned in such a way as to 'manufacture consent, ' as Chomsky put it? These are just two of the fascinating questions posed by the authors of this collection as they develop a new form of media literacy that encourages students to become critical readers of the media that attempts to shape their experience. This is an intriguing and wide-ranging critique that makes the perfect text for a variety of courses including curriculum studies, critical pedagogy, media studies, cultural studies and political science

"The writers in this collection are all Zimbabwean by birth or adoption. They are academics, lawyers, politicians, civil activists, priests, and war veterans. They all share a single passion: to describe so as to understand. Their investigations cover the interconnected questions of politics, land, the environment, economics, civil rights, the opposition, and the ideologies underlying the decisions of our leaders before and since independance. The authors pull no punches, but a message of hope emerged: the commitment of many to build a better future."--Jacket.

How elections are reported has important implications for the health of democracy and informed citizenship. But, how informative are the news media during campaigns? What kind of logic do they follow? How well do they serve citizens?e Based on original research as well as the most comprehensive assessment of election studies to date, Cushion and Thomas examine how campaigns are reported in many advanced Western democracies. In doing so, they engage with debates about the mediatization of politics, media systems, information environments, media ownership, regulation, political news, horserace journalism, objectivity, impartiality, agenda-setting, and the relationship between media and democracy more generally. Focusing on the most recent US and UK election campaigns, they consider how the logic of election coverage could be rethought in ways that better serve the democratic needs of citizens. Above all, they argue that election reporting should be driven by a public logic, where the agenda of voters takes centre stage in the campaign and the policies of respective political parties receive more airtime and independent scrutiny. The book is essential reading for scholars and students in political communication and journalism studies, political science, media and communication studies.
