About this book


This book engages with key theoretical and analytical issues in the field of media, communication and cultural studies. Using case studies of radio, internet, text messaging and photojournalism, it deploys Bourdieu's ideas to reveal how language in the media is implicated in broader social patterns of 'symbolic violence'.
