Mass media have taken the digital turn: they have made the transition from the analog past into our digital future. Today's communication students need a book that keeps pace with those changes—and with their own experiences as media consumers. While students may be familiar with the latest technology, Media & Culture can help enhance their understanding of how we arrived at this point, and where we're headed. The new edition explores the effects of the digital turn with new and informative part openers that dig into our media consumption habits, a brand-new chapter on digital gaming that goes deeper and further than other media books, and an integrated VideoCentral program throughout the book that converges the print text with the Web. Using its signature critical process and cultural perspective, Media & Culture shows how digital media really work—and how students can become informed media consumers and critics.

Introduction to Mass Communication: Media Literacy and Culture is an integrated program that encourages students to be active media consumers and gives them a deeper understanding of the role that the media plays in both shaping and reflecting culture. Through this cultural perspective, students learn that audience members are as much a part of the mass communication process as are the media producers, technologies, and industries. This was the first, and remains the only, university-level program to make media literacy central to its approach, and given recent national and global turmoil, its emphasis on media use and democracy could not be more timely. New for the eighth edition, Connect Mass Communication combines contemporary course content and groundbreaking digital tools to create a unique learning environment. With Connect Mass Communication, the Introduction to Mass Communication: Media Literacy and Culture program integrates an interactive eBook with dynamic online activities and assignments that help students study more efficiently and effectively. A new bank of CNN videos helps students learn the impact of media through a cultural and global lens. LearnSmart, McGraw-Hill's adaptive learning system, assesses students' knowledge of course content and maps out personalised study plans for success.
