This volume argues that previous works sometimes neglected the way in which organizations are influenced by the wider context of society. It combines overview essays with detailed case studies exploring Chinese soap opera, a Greek moral panic, British book reviews and political reporting. It also draws attention to the way in which the economic organization of the media influences its wider cultural and social roles. This is exemplified by iconoclastic studies of the Internet, musical indies, mega-musicals and media globalization, which question fashionable claims about the liberating role of markets, new technology and commercial enterprise.

Reframing Disability

The London 2012 Paralympic Games - the biggest, most accessible and best-attended games in the Paralympics' 64-year history - came with an explicit aim to "transform the perception of disabled people in society," and use sport to contribute to "a better world for all people with a disability." This social agenda offered the potential to re-frame disability; to symbolically challenge "ableist" ideology and to offer a reinvention of the (dis)abled body and a redefinition of the possible. This edited collection investigates what has and is happening in relation to these ambitions. The book is structured around three key questions: 1. What were the predominant mediated narratives surrounding the Paralympics, and what are the associated meanings attached to them? 2. How were the Paralympics experienced by media audiences (both disabled and non-disabled)? 3. To what extent did the 2012 Paralympics inspire social change? Each section of this book is interspersed with authentic "voices" from outside academia: broadcasters, athletes and disabled schoolchildren.

The idea of modern literature as a 'revolution of the word' has been current for three quarters of a century.

Among the disciplinary fields embraced are: philosophy of science, theories of knowledge, anthropology, psychoanalysis, religion, and social and political theory.
