The Television Studies Book is a collection of readings which analyses how the study of television has developed and points to new approaches dealing with rapidly changing technologies and formats. Chapters on the history and methods of studying television reflect on such issues as the impact of feminism and the development of ethnographic research while specific case studies on topics as varied as US 'talk shows' (e.g. Ricki Lake), Brazilian telenovelas, and the varied use of video in the home give a pointed and vivid account of current practices. Specially commissioned chapters by scholars such as Lynn Spiegel, Jostein Gripsud, Gillian Branston and Laura Stempel Murnford provide accessible accounts of the main developments in television studies.
