Winner of the 2017 James W. Carey Media Research Award

James W. Carey, by the time of his death in 2006, was a towering figure in communication research in the U.S. In this book, Pooley provides a critical introduction to Carey's work, tracing the evolution of his media theorizing from his graduate school years through to the publication in 1989, of his landmark Communication as Culture. The book is an attempt to understand the unusual if also undeniable significance that Carey holds for so many communication scholars, as well as making his work accessible to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In a nutshell, James W. Carey and Communication Research: Reputation at the University's Margins is a valuable and extremely well-written study that would make an excellent addition to courses in media and communication theory and cultural studies or to graduate-level introductions to the history of the field. It makes important contributions to the historiography of communication studies and the human sciences in the United States, and it's a good read for anyone interested in the historical unfolding of intellectual work and the dynamics of scholarly reputation."
(Peter Simonson, International Journal of Communication 13/2019)

"Pooley's fine book-at once a contribution to the sociology of knowledge, intellectual history, and communication research-is a compelling tribute to the enduring value of a legendary teacher's advice."
(Richard J. John, Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly 94/4 2017)

"The book overall is both an accessible introduction to Carey's work and a fitting tribute to its interpretivist values and virtues."
(European Journal of Communication 32/6 2017)
