About this book

These essays address one of the most challenging debates in contemporary European media studies: the transition of the traditional Public Service Broadcasters into Public Service Media, as they widen their remit to produce and distribute public service content across more delivery platforms to meet the requirements of the digital age.

Reviews

'This book should be read by all people who are concerned about the democratic quality of modern societies.

It raises the crucial question of how to secure the provision of information and entertainment through multiple public-service platforms. Strongly recommended!'

- Professor Dr Cees J. Hamelink, University of Amsterdam, Holland

'This well-designed collection of brilliant, informative, and generally supportive analyses of European public TV is important reading for anyone interested in the present of these central institutions and their rocky transition to a broader set of digital public service media.'

- Professor Eli Noam, Columbia University, USA

'A very timely and extremely valuable collection of essays on public service media in a digital age. Highly commendable.'

- Professor Daya Thussu, University of Westminster, UK

'Reinventing Public Service Communication is an expansive collection, amounting to a critical and realistic defence of public service responsibilities across media. Any scholar with even the slightest interest in the area should look at the book, and anyone including public service communication within their research or teaching portfolio will find Petros Iosifidis's collection indispensible.'

- Michael Higgins, European Journal of Communication
