The Mass Comm Murders is a novel way (both literally and figuratively) to introduce students to mass communication theory. Highlighting theories from semiotics to the spiral of silence, Berger combines theoretical discussion with a satire of academia and a parody of the mystery genre, complete with eccentric professors and international intrigue. This fun and accessible text is an ideal supplement for courses in mass communication and communication theory.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Mass Comm Murders is a conflation of mystery, theory, and satire, engaging its readers on several levels. Besides providing a multi-sided overview of five perspectives of mass communication embodied in five murder suspects, this darkly droll book is also a morality tale about the shadowy underside of academic life-our conferences, publications, and 'collegial' jealousies. Readers, whether new to or mired in academia and mass communication, will enjoy this irreverent juxtaposition of media theories. -- Susan Hafen
The Mass Comm Murders surely takes the award for the most original approach to media theory! * Communication Booknotes Quarterly *
The Mass Comm Murders brings communication theories to life in a unique way, turning infotainment back onto the field that invented it. This book will be valuable to students of communication and to anyone interested in the global roots of this burgeoning discipline. . . . A joy to read. -- William H. Dutton, University of Southern California, author of Society on the Line
