Understanding Media Industries examines the influence of media industry organization and practices on society. It offers students pursuing both scholarly and professional careers related to the media industries a comprehensive overview of how the industries work, why they work as they do, and what the broader theoretical and practical implications of the media industries are. Questions such as “why is media industry organization important?”, “how do we make sense of media industry changes?” and “what are the key issues facing media industries?” animate the analysis.” Co-authored with Timothy Havens
