书籍介绍《The Mobile Media Reader》

I wanted to let everyone know that our anthology on mobile media is
out now, The Mobile Media Reader , ed.  by Noah Arceneaux and Anandam
Kavoori (Peter Lang, 2012)

I'm pasting the official blurb from the back of the book below, plus
the table of contents.

Portable phones were once limited to voice and text messaging, though
these devices are now miniature multi-media centers that can fit
neatly in one’s pocket. Media industries off all types are adapting
content for this new platform, or innovating entirely new forms. In
the light of the explosive growth of this technology, The Mobile Media
offers a diverse collection of essays that establish conceptual,
critical frameworks for evaluating the latest transformation of the
media landscape. Some essays explore older phenomenon, such as C.B.
radio, automobile radio, and hand-held video games, to provide a
historical context, while others unpack the behind-the-scenes
negotiations that determine what kinds of services are available to
consumers. The Mobile Media Reader provides a road map for both
scholars and beginning students to examine the social, cultural, and
commercial implications of media that is available anywhere at any
time.
