MEDIA REVIEWS

"Covering an industry full of hope and hype, Kung's book stands out for its focus on concepts, drivers, and dynamics. Its scope and learning are brilliant and dazzling--the ascendancy of the media tech sector, the culture of digital organizations, their creative workforce, and their strategic leadership. This greatly updated and upgraded edition will be a source of insight for aspiring students and a tool for industry veterans who seek the perspective of academia."

-- Eli Noam
"In the age of relentless technological disruption, unlimited media distribution, artificial scarcity, content abundance, and non-professionalized creators and practices, successful media firms are more dependent than ever on strategic media management. In her first book, Lucy Kung identified the core concepts, strategic themes, and best practices in the field. In her second edition, Kung articulates the iterative dimensions of the media industries to account for an ever-increasing array of challenges and strategies." -- David Craig
"A landmark contribution to scholarship in the area of media management, Lucy Kung's excellent and most welcome revised Strategic Management in the Media provides an empirically rich and analytically sharp-sighted guide to the forces, concepts and issues governing contemporary organizational strategies in a complex and dynamic digital media environment."
-- Gillian Doyle

"In this second edition of a book many found invaluable for research and teaching, including myself, Kung accomplishes a challenging task: to preserve all the best qualities of the first edition while both extending the scope and deepening understandings about strategic management theory in application to media industries. She has thoroughly updated an already rich assortment of case studies to ensure a much needed contemporary view of how theory informs practice, and the reverse."

-- Gregory Ferrell Lowe
"Once again, Lucy Kung has produced the standard text in media management. Fully updated, it offers a comprehensive and accessible guide to strategic management in the media for students, lecturers and researchers. It is compulsory reading in my classes!"
