Summary
"Communicating Unreality reviews the images and meanings of our mass-mediated world. With careful attention to the integration of news and entertainment, fact and fiction, and event and story, author Gabriel Weimann examines our symbolic environment, in which reality and fiction are almost inseparable. Through discussion of mass-mediated images of people, cultures, war, love, sex, death, community and identity, we learn that there often exists a large gap between reality and reconstruction of "realities" as communicated by the mass media."--Jacket
