Recent Books on the Media Industries, 2015-present



Media Industries Books, 2015-2016

I'm teaching my Media Industries graduate seminar again this fall, so it's time to again offer a new list of recent industry related book publications (and to provide my biennial post on this blog).

As before (see prior lists below), this list consists of books featuring a range of approaches to the media industries. In an effort to be as expansive as possible, I have included everything from scholarly manuscripts to introductory textbooks to select popular/crossover publications.  

Please contact me via Twitter @aperren  or by email (aperren [at] utexas.edu) if you have additional suggestions or updates regarding this list.
