In this book, Barrie Gunter provides a broad overview of the methodological perspectives adopted by media researchers in their attempt to derive a better understanding of the nature, role and impact of media in society. By tracing the epistemological and theoretical roots of the major methodological perspectives, Gunter identifies the various schools of social scientific research that have determined the major perspectives in the area. Drawing a distinction between quantitative and qualitative methods, he discusses the relative advantages and disadvantages of each approach, and examines recent trends that signal a convergence of approaches and their associated forms of research. The unique strength of this

Cultural Production in Virtual and Imagined Worlds foregrounds how the two important fields of visual culture and Internet culture interact. This collection of essays explores the intersections, overlaps and disparities in terms of how the two discourses illuminate our everyday negotiations as we become increasingly dependent on the Internet and virtual/visual imaginings for constructing who we are. What is being examined here are the ways in which we use visual/virtual lenses to see the world both individually and collectively. This book represents a transnational effort that began as a series of conversations during the Mid Atlantic Popular/American Culture conferences from 2005–2009. The editors, a Canadian and an American, have included contributors across national and geographic contexts. Cultural Production is aimed at raising questions, crossing borders and presenting points of departure for future scholarship in the relatively new and very rapidly changing disciplines of visual and virtual cultures. Our critical approach to this study includes viewing Internet images as contested sites of cultural activity and also as sites that advance ideologies related to cultural transformation.

Wir geben eine gründliche Anleitung für die Arbeit unter diesem qualitativ-sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschungsstil – eine Fortentwicklung der von Anselm Strauss und Barney Glaser begründeten Methodologie. Das Buch basiert auf ca. 30-jähriger Erfahrung mit dem Ansatz. Wir stellen die Geschichte, die erkenntnistheoretischen Grundlagen, die Denkweise und die zirkuläre Schritte-Abfolge des Forschungsprozesses vor. Die Idee der datenbegründeten Theoriebildung bekommt eine neue Akzentuierung: Wir heben die begleitende reflexive Selbst-Aufmerksamkeit der Forschenden als Leitlinie und Erkenntnisheuristik hervor. Gütekriterien und ethische Fragen des Forschungsstils werden besprochen. Beispiele der Arbeit mit dem Ansatz, der Anwendung seines Instrumentariums sowie seiner Aneignung im Studium runden die Darstellung ab.

Based on a graduate course at the Technische Universität, Berlin, these lectures present a wealth of material on the modern theory of convex polytopes. The straightforward exposition features many illustrations, and complete proofs for most theorems. With only linear algebra as a prerequisite, it takes the reader quickly from the basics to topics of recent research. The lectures introduce basic facts about polytopes, with an emphasis on methods that yield the results, discuss important examples and elegant constructions, and show the excitement of current work in the field. They will provide interesting and enjoyable reading for researchers as well as students.

Paddy Scannells Buch bietet eine faszinierende, erhellende und sehr gut verständliche Einführung in die Medien- und Kommunikationstheorie. Scannell entwickelt anhand der historischen Entwicklungen in Nordamerika und Europa eine sehr zugängliche, systematische und gleichzeitig differenzierte Analyse der verschiedenen Zugänge der Beschäftigung mit Medien- und Kommunikation. Immer wieder schöpft er aus verschiedenen Disziplinen und fordert so insgesamt die Leserinnen und Leser heraus, sich mit Kommunikation und Medien in ihren Gesamtzusammenhängen auseinander zu setzen. Das international vielfach beachtete Werk des bekannten britischen Wissenschaftlers und Professors für Kommunikationswissenschaft an der University of Michigan liegt nun endlich in deutscher Sprache vor.

area and in applications to linguistics, formal epistemology, and the study of norms. The second contains papers on non-classical and many-valued logics, with an eye on applications in computer science and through it to engineering. The third concerns the logic of belief management,whichis likewise closely connected with recent work in computer science but also links directly with epistemology, the philosophy of science, the study of legal and other normative systems, and cognitive science. The grouping is of course rough, for there are contributions to the volume that lie astride a boundary; at least one of them is relevant, from a very abstract perspective, to all three areas. We say a few words about each of the individual chapters, to relate them to each other and the general outlook of the volume. Modal Logics The ?rst bundle of papers in this volume contains contribution to modal logic. Three of them examine general problems that arise for all kinds of modal logics. The ?rst paper is essentially semantical in its approach, the second proof-theoretic, the third semantical again: • Commutativity of quanti?ers in varying-domain Kripke models,by R. Goldblatt and I. Hodkinson, investigates the possibility of com- tation (i.e. reversing the order) for quanti?ers in ?rst-order modal logics interpreted over relational models with varying domains. The authors study a possible-worlds style structural model theory that does not v- idate commutation, but satis?es all the axioms originally presented by Kripke for his familiar semantics for ?rst-order modal logic.

This volume is based on a lecture course on constructive Galois Theory given in Karlsruhe by the author. The purpose of the course was to introduce students to the methods developed in the past few years for the realisation of finite groups as Galois groups over Q or over abelian number fields. Thus the book is addressed primarily to students with algebraic interests, as seminar material. Specialiists also will find in it a multitude of examples of polynomials with special Galois groups, which can of course also be used for the usual algebra courses.
