Review: "This book combines theoretical and empirical perspectives to address three relevant issues that are marking the European communicative landscape: the role of media and journalism in shaping the European debate, the function of public communication in promoting institutional activities and the implications of processes of inclusion to and exclusion from the Public Sphere. This volume offers a timely reflection on the communicative arenas which are structuring the discourse on Europe and its future." "Situated in a timely debate and uniquely giving well-grounded empirical evidence, this book targets primarily post-graduate students and scholars in social sciences who are working on European Integration issues. At the same time, the book is relevant to those actors studied in the different pieces of research, in particular European institutions, media groups and NGOs."--Jacket.
