Reading
Where possible I have included some general ntroductory reading on the reading list. As the phrase implies these are readings to introduce you to the topic and are by no means comprehensive. Background reading refers to books that provide some background to the issues being discussed and are a useful resource for essay writing. Students should make an effort to read some of these texts.
Generally speaking there is no one single book that addresses all the issues to be covered in this module. You may however, consider purchasing the following books:

Where applicable you should specifically try to determine the origin of output, and or ownership of the related media companies. Summarise your experiences in essay form.

In what ways are the concepts detailed in the literature helpful in understanding your experiences? You will find the recommended reading in weeks 1, 2 and 3 helpful.
