  •     A Japanese friend obtaining his Master's degree in Mass Media at a British university introduced me to this book. He found that when studying the media in a second language, this dictionary was indispensable in helping him with jargon not found in usual dictionaries. The definitions are concise, easy to understand and often offer advice on where to research for more information (it includes an extensive bibliography). I began using this dictionary for the Introduction to Media classes I teach at a Japanese university. My students also find the definitions simple to grasp and, when leafing through the book on their own, discover aspects of the media they are personally interested in.It is mostly focused on Britain/America, which is not a complaint, but something to be aware of if you are expecting more coverage of the international media. Also, though the book was published only two years ago, the speed at which the media change warrants a new edition fairly soon.
