Culture, politics, economics and technology all impact upon policy decisions. To investigate the factors that influence communications policy, however, one has to go beyond conventional views of media and communication studies and combine these with policy studies.
Communications Policy: Theories and Issues utilizes new research to highlight key debates and developments, and addresses a broad spectrum of contemporary concerns regarding the structure and the organization of communications systems in the past, present and future. Combining theoretical analysis with empirical research findings, this comprehensive text explores the contemporary theories and issues in communications policy that affect all democratic societies as they seek to address the challenges of emerging information and communications technologies.
Featuring contributions from distinguished authors across a range of media disciplines, Communications Policy introduces challenging ideas about how communications should be structured in the future and is essential reading for all policy makers, researchers and students of communications policy. Contributors: Bram Abramson, Johannes M. Stewart, Yan Tian and Roxanne Welters.

Much has been written about the history of Communism in America, including the party's appeal to many in the Hollywood community of the s and s.

Community theatre is an important device for communities to collectively share stories, to participate in political dialogue, and to break down the increasing exclusion of marginalised groups of citizens. It is practised all over the world by growing numbers of people. Published at the same time as a video of the same name, this is a unique record of these theatre groups in action.
Based on van Erven's own travels and experiences working with community theatre groups in six very different countries, this is the first study of their work and the methodological traditions which have developed around the world. A detailed account of the only community theatre network in Africa that is run by grassroots artists on a national and international scale.
Examines the ways in which the movie theater fostered its own sense of place and community, one with its own architectural styles, its own neighborhood districts, and its own cultural rules of behavior. Rules are rules. But in a place where true friendship is gold dust, rules beg to be broken. Chelle and Denise go way back. Denise, with her loud mouth and long extensions, made the same-old-same-old of prison life not so bad. But when Denise leaves, with no goodbye, no nothing, Chelle figures she's just run out of friendships.
Then Ruthie walks in. The story of their friendship unfolds in Jennifer Farmer's sharp and richly textured play. Thirty-one papers, presented by Wasko communication and journalism, U. The papers cover television and history; aesthetics and production; the state and television policy; television and commerce; programming, content, and genre; the public and audiences; challenges to corporate dominance; and case studies of international television developments.
The material, with the exception of the international case studies, primarily deals with television in the context of the United States. A comprehensive treatment of the Classical World in film and television, A Companion to Ancient Greece and Rome on Screen closely examines the films and TV shows centered on Greek and Roman cultures and explores the tension between pagan and Christian worlds.
Written by a team of experts in their fields, this work considers productions that discuss social settings as reflections of their times and as indicative of the technical advances in production and the economics of film and television. Productions included are a mix of Hollywood and European spanning from the silent film era though modern day television series, and topics discussed include Hollywood politics in film, soundtrack and sound design, high art and low art, European art cinemas, and the ancient world as comedy.

A Companion to Australian Cinema comprises twenty-six original essays on the contemporary state and future directions of a well-established national cinema. A timely collection that challenges and expands the idea of cinema, this book brings into sharp focus those facets of Australian screen production that have evolved and emerged in the twenty-first century.
The essays assembled here address six thematically organized propositions - that Australian cinema is an Indigenous screen culture, an international cinema, a minor transnational imaginary, an auteur-genre-landscape cinema, a televisual industry and a multiplatform ecology. Offering fresh critical perspectives and extending previous scholarship, case studies range from The Lego Movie, Mad Max and Australian stars in Hollywood, to transnational co-productions, YouTube channels, transmedia and naturecam documentaries. New research on trends such as the Blak Wave, the convergence of television and film, digital transformations of screen production and the shifting roles of women, on and off-screen, highlight how established precedents have been transformed by new realities beyond both cinema and national borders.
Written in an accessible style that does not require knowledge of cinema studies or Australian studies Presents original research on Australian actors such as Cate Blanchett and Chris Hemsworth, evaluating their training, branding and path from Australia to Hollywood Explores the films and filmmakers of the Blak Wave and their challenge to Australian settler-colonial history and white identity Introduces readers to founding texts in Australian screen studies A Companion to Australian Cinema is an ideal introductory text for teachers and students in film, media and cultural studies, Indigenous and gender studies, and Australian history and politics, as well as a valuable resource for educators and other professionals in the humanities and creative arts.
