About the Book

Mass Communication in Canada examines the past, present, and future of mass communication and its effects on society.

  • Provides students with a foundation in the basic concepts, issues, and history of mass communication.
  • Presents a unified and integrated account of mass communication in a Canadian context. As a core text, it provides consistency in terms of tone and presentation for students.

  • Accessible for students from both a social sciences and humanities background.
