by Stuart N. Soroka, Negativity In Democratic Politics Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Negativity In Democratic Politics book, This book explores the political implications of the human tendency to prioritize negative information over positive information. Drawing on literatures in political science, psychology, economics, communications, biology, and physiology, this book argues that "negativity biases" should be evident across a wide range of political behaviors. These biases are then demonstrated through a diverse and cross-disciplinary set of analyses, for instance: in citizens' ratings of presidents and prime ministers; in aggregate-level reactions to economic news, across 17 countries; in the relationship between covers and newsmagazine sales; and in individuals' physiological reactions to network news content. The pervasiveness of negativity biases extends, this book suggests, to the functioning of political institutions - institutions that have been designed to prioritize negative information in the same way as the human brain.
by Simona Bevern, Party Communication In Routine Times Of Politics Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Party Communication In Routine Times Of Politics book, Simona Bevern addresses the questions what and why political parties communicate in the time between elections, focusing on the dynamic rise and fall of policy issues.

In this study, interactions between parties’ communication, their party competitors, the legislative agenda and public opinion are studied in Germany for the years 2004–2009, making use of a novel data set and quantitative methods.
by Anders Hansen, Environment Media And Communication Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Environment Media And Communication book, Communication about ‘the environment’ in and through a broad array of news, advertising, art and entertainment media is one of the major sources of public and political understanding of definitions, issues and problems associated with the environment. Environment, Media and Communication examines the social, cultural and political roles of the media as a public arena for images, representations, definitions and controversy regarding the environment. The book starts by discussing and outlining a framework for analyzing media and communication roles in the emergence of the environment and environmental problems as issues for public and political concern. It proceeds to examine who and what drives the public agenda on environmental issues, addressing questions about how governments, scientists, experts, pressure groups and other stakeholders have sought to use traditional as well as newer media for promoting their definitions of the key issues. The media are not merely an open public arena or stage, but rather themselves a key gate-keeper and influence in the process of communicating about the environment: the role of news values, organizational arrangements and professional practices, are thus examined next. Recognizing the importance of wider popular culture narratives to public understanding and communication about the environment and nature, the book proceeds with a discussion of the messages and moral tales communicated about the environment, science and nature in a range of media, including film and advertising media. It shows how this wider context provides important clues to understanding the successes and failures of selected environmental issues or campaigns. The book finishes with an examination of the key approaches and models used for understanding how the media influence and interact with public opinion and political decision-making on environmental issues. Offering a comprehensive introduction to theoretical approaches and models for the study of media and communication roles regarding the environment, and drawing on empirical research evidence and examples from Europe, America, Australia and Asia, the book will be of interest to students in media/communication studies, geography, environmental studies, political science and sociology as wll as to environmental professionals and activists.
by Hannah Schmid-Petri, Das Framing Von Issues In Medien Und Politik Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Das Framing Von Issues In Medien Und Politik book, Wie Themen in Medien und Politik behandelt werden ist unter gesellschafts- und demokratietheoretischen Gesichtspunkten relevant, da ein sinnvoller Diskurs zwischen Bevölkerung, Medien und Politik nur dann stattfinden kann, wenn es zumindest gewisse inhaltliche Überschneidungen gibt. Hannah Schmid-Petri vergleicht Verarbeitungs-Prozesse (Framing) für Medien und Politik auf der Grundlage system- und akteurstheoretischer Annahmen, an die Erkenntnisse aus dem Bereich der Nachrichtenwerttheorie, des Agenda-Settings und des Framings angebunden werden. Die Verarbeitung eines Issues wird verstanden als die Selektion von einzelnen inhaltlichen Aspekten, die sich zu Mustern verdichten, sowie die Auswahl von Akteuren, die sich zu einem Thema äußern. Kenntnisse über die Selektion von Issues werden dabei auf die Verarbeitung übertragen („Selektion zweiter Ordnung“) und somit Nachrichtenwerttheorie und Framing-Ansatz integriert.
