MEDIA REVIEWS
Hesmondhalgh has done it again! The 3rd edition of The Cultural Industries is a tour-de-force. At once brilliant and accessible, it is without peer when it comes to detailing the big picture and complex nuances of how cultural industries work. Hesmondalgh's updated, incisive analysis of the current era is exceptional, as is his masterful exploration of the fundamental theories and practices of cultural production. Every student of the media should have this book on their shelf.
Jennifer Holt
Associate Professor, University of California

In The Cultural Industries, David Hesmondhalgh sets out to assess, evaluate and explain recent changes in the cultural industries - and this he does with energy, acuity and aplomb. This book is sometimes provocative, always insightful and refreshingly direct. No-one could study the culture industries without engaging with its vision and argumentation. And this third edition is even better than before.
Sonia Livingstone
LSE, author of 'Media Regulation'

Comprehensive and critical, authoritative and analytical, this is a wonderful book that will absorb, stimulate and educate students of media and cultural studies for years to come. This new edition contains updated material as well as the same fresh and incisive lines of enquiry that we need in order to make sense of the changes and continuities inside the cultural industries.
Des Freedman
Department of Media and Communications, Goldsmiths College, University of London

From the very first edition, David Hesmondhalgh's Cultural Industries set the standard for a syncretic account that works across the terrains of cultural studies, media studies, and cultural policy studies. This new expanded and updated edition, distinguished by the particularly perceptive and critical integration of digital media into the account, is an exceptional achievement -- for its scale, for its comprehensiveness, and for the level-headed intelligence that is the hallmark of Hesmondhalgh's writing.
Professor Graeme Turner
Director of the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies, The University of Queensland

This must-read text makes one realize how studying the people, organizations, and social policies that drive cultural industries can be important, fascinating - even exciting - especially in our profoundly changing media world.
Joseph Turow
Annenberg School of Communication, University of Pennsylvania
