Media Consumption and Public Engagement: beyond the presumption of attention

Nick Couldry, Sonia M Livingstone|, Tim Markham
Palgrave Macmillan (April 2007)

Contemporary democracies are based on the belief that media can deliver the attention of the voting populations. But in an age of multiplying media, political disillusionment, and time-scarcity, is this plausible any longer?

This book addresses this major question head on, drawing on the voices of people from the UK who were asked to write diaries about their experiences (or not) of 'public connection', as well as survey data and comparative research in the USA and elsewhere.
