"As globalisation, convergence and digitisation restructure the media industries at dizzying speed, the human effort that enables them has never been more important. Yet up to now this topic has been surprisingly neglected, perhaps because scholars have been daunted by the sheer scale of the interdisciplinary challenge. This collection rises to that challenge, bringing together key world-leading experts to provide an authoritative introduction to media labour right along the value chain, from hardware manufacture to content production to waste disposal. Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the labour behind the media." --Ursula Huws, University of Hertfordshire, author of Labor in the Global Digital Economy: The Cybertariat Comes of Age "Media Studies joins the 'turn to labor' with this superb volume. Expertly assembled, and as close to definitive as we could hope for. A truly indispensable companion!" --Andrew Ross, New York University "This is an important and compelling collection devoted to the constant that unites media old and new, digital, and analog, mass and post-mass: the labor upon which they rely, whether this takes place behind the screens, under the 'clouds,' offshore, or outsourced. The collection features engaging essays from the top scholars in the field, making it a staple text for anyone interested in the political economy of the media and its implications for democracy, politics, and the environment." --Mark Andrejevic, Pomona College
