Editorial Reviews


"This is the best all-around media law text for undergraduate and graduate students alike. The clear, nonthreatening writing style of the authors, by itself, sets this book apart. And yet, it does so by not leaving out any important areas of inquiry. That’s why my colleagues and I continue to adopt this for all of our media law classes."

-- Jonathan Kotler

"This is a rare book that is comprehensive in its coverage of media law concepts but at the same time is easy for students to read and follow along. The cases for study, the way the text brings in pop culture and digital media, and the overall accessibility of the text makes the comprehensiveness of the manuscript even more impressive."

-- Brian Moritz

"This is the best book on media law availablehands down. It covers several relevant areas of law in a way that is engaging, thoughtful, and thorough. After reading this text, students will be able to identify relevant doctrine and apply it to their lives, their work, and their worlds."

-- Caitlin Ring Carlson

"I have used this text for almost five years, and I can say that it improves understanding of difficult content, improves passing rates, and provides the instructor with valuable tools to make a usually dry class much more exciting. I would say this text is by and far the best textbook for large, undergraduate Media Law courses. I would also say to colleagues to consider the text for graduate courses in Media Law."

-- Derrick Holland

"This textbook makes communication and media law come alive for students by demonstrating its impact on our everyday communication practices."

-- J. J. Sylvia IV
