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
"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)
