Here's what you say about us...

Robert Kolker is Professor Emeritus at the University of Maryland, where he taught from 1971-2000. He is currently Adjunct Professor of Media Studies and American Studies at the University of Virginia.

"It is an introduction to media in every sense of the word, whetting the appetite to learn more and ensuring the reader will more thoughtfully navigate-not just consume-the media bombardment that is unavoidable in modern life." (M/C Reviews, January 2010)

"Kolker's writing style is precise yet engaging. The breadth of knowledge he displays is impressive; even more so are the original connections Kolker makes and encourages students to explore as mediations of culture." (Journalism & Mass Communication Educator, Winter 2009)
