Through a range of illuminating examples ranging from climate change to oil spills, Media, Environment and the Network Society provides a timely and far-reaching analysis of the media politics of contemporary environmental debates.

Reviews

'Media, Environment and the Network Society is a much-needed rethinking by one of the field's leading scholars of many of our assumptions about media and environmental activism. Anderson's conceptually-smart analysis takes us well beyond activists' quest for access or visibility to the rapidly changing and complex terrain of global media politics including digital media in a networked world.' - Robert Cox, Professor Emeritus, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA

'A skilful guide through the rapidly-changing media landscape in which environment communication now takes place and through the new scholarship that has accompanied it. Anderson writes with the clarity of a good journalist and the rigour of a good academic.' - James Painter, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, University of Oxford, UK

'Anderson expertly navigates the complex terrain of media, environment, politics and power. As one of the founders of this academic field, she provides a nuanced and rich account of how environmental issues are constructed and contested across a range of media platforms and social actors, including NGOs, businesses, citizens and celebrities. In placing emphasis on the power dynamics of online and offline media and activism in particular, Anderson lends us critical insight into the contemporary formations of the mediatised politics of the environment.' - Julie Doyle, Media and Communication Studies, University of Brighton, UK
