Using a sample of so-called popular and ‘quality’ European newspapers and their TV listings as a stepping stone, Media, Markets & Public Spheres presents an overview of changes in the European public spheres over the last fifty years as well as in-depth analyses of structural changes in press and broadcasting, changing relations between media, changes in media policies and media history as record of cultural change.

With a rare comparative perspective, both across nation states and across decades of European history, this book explores how and why the media decisively influence most social areas, from the socialization of children to the workings of the economy.

Compiled by a team of leading media researchers from ten countries, Media, Markets & Public Spheres will be useful to students in media and communication studies, and European studies, as well as for those studying sociology and political science.
