Mass Media in a Changing World
- 4th edition - by George Rodman
|This is what the cover of the 4th edition looks like. If the cover
doesn't look like this, the text is an older, outdated edition. Quizzes
will be based on the 4th edition. You will find less expensive, earlier
editions for sale on the Internet, but they may not prepare you adequately for
the quizzes, and won't give you up-to-date information.|
Media Career Guide: Preparing for Jobs in the 21st Century
by James Seguin and Sherri Hope Culver (any edition)
