Mapping Hegemony: Television News Coverage of Industrial Conflict
Ablex Publishing Corporation, Jan 1, 1991 - Business & Economics - 258 pages
This volume brings critical theory to bear on a familiar feature of our daily lives- the evening news on television- in order to clarify what it means to talk about hegemony. This book's approach makes accesible to a wider audience another way of seeing an otherwise taken-for-granted dimension of daily life and political culture. By empirically and theoretically reading a text taken from the evening news students can inspect, in a language familiar to them, what issues of "ideology" and "legitimation" are about.
