Health and the Media : Essays on the Effects of Mass Communication Paperback / softback

Edited by Valentina Marinescu, Bianca Mitu


The present volume fills in a gap in the emerging field of media and health by including micro and macro-level oriented approaches of health and communication, based on multiple methodologies.

The authors analyze the media and medicine from different perspectives.

Interesting and revealing results emerge, which contribute to the re-evaluation of health communication and health literacy theories.

Moreover, even if contributors to this book come from different countries (USA, UK, Poland, France, Australia, Romania) they somehow manage to reach a common language in their studies, offering a re-positioning of the debates on the link between media and medicine.

The new perspectives offered are of interest to any health communication or media studies scholar because they bring to light new ideas, new methodologies and results that could be further developed.

At the same time, the volume allows readers to explore these unique insights and to easily digest the content and acknowledge the impact of media on health and healthcare.
