              Strategic Communication, Social Media and Democracy: The challenge of the digital naturals (Paperback)

              Today almost everyone in the developed world spends time online and anyone involved in strategic communication must think digitally. The magnitude of change may be up for debate but the trend is unstoppable, dramatically reconfiguring business models, organisational structures an...d even the practice of democracy. Strategic Communication, Social Media and Democracy provides a wholly new framework for understanding this reality, a reality that is transforming the way both practitioners and theoreticians navigate this fast-moving environment. Firmly rooted in empirical research, and resisting the lure of over-optimistic communication dreams, it explores both the potential that social media offers for changing the relationships between organisations and stakeholders, and critically analyses what has been achieved so far. This innovative text will be of great interest to researchers, educators and advanced students in strategic communications, public relations, corporate communication, new media, social media and communication management.

              Where societies have a high penetration of new technologies combined with civic engagement and consensual politics, both radical and conservative social actors are facing new challenges brought by the breaking down of communication barriers. As so-called digital naturals become t...he norm, the control which has customarily been exerted by strategic communication is being increasingly degraded with profound effects on the public relations profession. Scholarly and research-based, this book explores the myriad ways in which the digital environment can alter societies' dynamic in the public sphere. It seeks to balance both the optimism and pessimism generated by social media and considers the reality of the challenge it presents. Firmly rooted in empirical research, and avoiding the trap of an overly optimistic empowerment of communication targets, it explores both the potential social media offers for changing the relationships between organisations and stakeholders, and analyses what has been achieved so far. It will be of great interest to researchers, educators and advanced students in Strategic Communications, Public Relations, Corporate Communication, new media, social media and communication management.

              The Private Melville

              The Private Melville is a delight to read. Wise, learned, witty, and thoughtful, it moves very smoothly even when it is covering tangled biographical and scholarly ground. In fact, it doesn't read like a scholarly book at all, even though it is based on an extremely close and det...ailed and almost loving reading of sources, interpretations, and archival alluvia. -Giles Gunn, University of California, Santa Barbara The Private Melville is personal, even private (as the topic mandates), and idiosyncratic; it is opinionated and provocative. It contains no trace of fashionable jargon: where are the Poetics of Privacy? Instead, it proceeds from manuscript evidence and from texts of literary works. Young addresses a broad audience that will be eager to follow the seemingly random, indirect probings of a fine intellect in intense pursuit of disparate phases of Melvillean experience. -Hershel Parker, University of Delaware The Private Melville demonstrates how great a role his profound sense of privacy played in Melville's life and work. Secrets he was careful never to reveal are unmasked by Philip Young. Privacy, as it appears to Melville here, is of three types. First are family matters the public had no business knowing about, such as the life story of a secret half-sister; next the story of the life of a cousin, model for the heroine of his incestuous novel, Pierre; and then the history of the woman's forebears. The second type concerns four Berkshire Tales that depend heavily on private jokes, and thus have secret meaning that escaped the editors who printed them and continue to evade critics and scholars. The third kind deals with two fictions so little understood that the meaning might as well be secret: a speech of Ahab's, which is called the spiritual climax of Moby Dick; and Melville's very last fiction, Daniel Orme, a self-portrait in which he has gone pretty much unrecognized.

              American Fiction, American Myth: Essays by Philip Young
               

              American Fiction, American Myth: Essays by Philip Young (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Few experts in American literature have written as insightfully and brilliantly as did Philip Young, renowned Hemingway critic and scholar at large. His unique work bursts with a joy in the humanities, with a sensibility, a humor, and a style that communicate to academics and gen...eral readers alike. Although Young died in 1991, he survives in his remarkable prose.American Fiction, American Myth features nineteen groundbreaking essays in which Young masterfully reveals the so what? that he insisted all literary studies ought to have. In the first section, he demonstrates his fascination with such American myths as Pocahontas and Rip Van Winkle, reaching powerful conclusions about America and its people. In the second section, he becomes Our Hemingway Man, explaining his germinal and still provocative theory that Hemingway's severe wounding in World War I so traumatized the novelist that his fiction was to a great degree unwitting self-psychoanalysis. Young's book on Hemingway was the first of its kind, but Young was more than a one-author critic, as his essays demonstrate in the third section, exploring such diverse topics as Hawthorne's secret love, the Lost Generation that was never lost, F. Scott Fitzgerald's debt to T. S. Eliot, and the relationship between American fiction and American life. What Hemingway once said about himself can be equally applied to Young: I am a very serious but not a solemn writer. The reader comes away from these essays dazzled by the power of Young's observations and the grace with which he expresses them.
