PREFACE TO THE THIRD

This is the third edition of a book first published in the early 1980s, followed by an enlarged and revised edition in the 1990s. It has remained in print and in demand for all of the intervening time. It has also been translated into Chinese, Spanish, Korean and Bahasa Malaysian.

Now here it is again, spruced up for a new century. For this edition it has been revised from top to bottom, has come under single authorship, with crucial input from Martin Montgomery, Elinor Rennie and Marc Brennan, and it has been redesigned. Some concepts survive from earlier editions, but for the most part this is an entirely new work. The entries now include many that relate to new interactive media and the 'new economy', developments that were not even on the horizon when the first edition was published.

The first edition was published in 1982 with the title Key Concepts in Communication Studies. The second edition was Key Concepts in Communication and Cultural Studies, published in 1994. This edition is called Communication, Cultural and Media Studies: The Key Concepts, the change in form of the title reflecting this volume's alignment with Routledge's 'Key Guides', of which it was the prototype. Cultural and media studies have also been successively added, in recognition of their importance both within these covers and in the world.
