In this latest edition of a highly praised book, Graber covers a broad range of subjects with three focal points: the mass media and their place in the public and private sectors; the media and their impact on individuals' attitudes and perceptions; and media coverage of governmental institutions and political situations.

Cyberspace and other technological developments are bringing the worlds of mass media and government closer together. Understanding how mass media and American government impact each other requires an understanding of their functions and structures.
