Comunicarea politică este în schimbare la nivelul democraţiilor industriale avansate. Sistemele tradiţionale de comunicare politică, cu canale media limitate şi regulate, cu modele stabile de consum media, lasă loc unor modele mai puţin ordonate şi predictibile. Această carte oferă o naraţiune accesibilă şi comprehensivă asupra felului în care guvernele, partidele politice şi organizaţiile media din Statele Unite şi Marea Britanie se adaptează acestor schimbări sistemice
