Revue de presse
"In this incredibly handy book, Gray and Lotz offer a concise, clear guide to state–of–the–art thinking. Covering how TV studies should be done; its history and its key aspect; and the importance of studying context alongside the classic trio of industry–program–audience, this ′Short Introduction′ consistently makes the case for TV Studies′ contemporary relevance, as well as for TV′s cultural importance. The Meanings and technologies of television may be changing, but Gray and Lotz are supremely switched–on guides to the subject. If some shows are must–sees, then this is the intellectual equivalent – a must–read." Matt Hills, Cardiff University " Television Studies is the best introduction to the field available. Gray and Lotz present a comprehensive synthesis of the theories and methods that have defined television studies so far, bringing together a wide range of critical models for studying the medium′s past, present and future. Undergraduates will love this highly engaging book." Laurie Ouellette, University of Minnesota
