"Events around the world are broadcast by giant media players such as CNN, BBC, NHK, etc. Consumers of news media receive the final message without knowing the processes that the images, the text and the sound have gone through. The media players can be considered as professional generators of national news, who manipulate presentations according to professional standards as well as local needs that are culturally based. This book explores how powerful political and economic agendas in the national media environment influence the production processes. It shows how the outcome is planned and negotiated between correspondents on location, editors and popular anchors that express the local cultural and political heritage. The study is based on interviews with media experts and newsroom observation at two Japanese TV stations; a public station (NHK) and a commercial station (TV Asahi), and it shows how events are 'domesticated' for the target audience."

Reader Review, by Joseph S Maresca: "This is an excellent work which contains sample salutations, proper titles and the many uses of letters. For instance, a letter may be used for routine matters, selling, collecting, customer goodwill and a whole host of purposes too numerous to list here. The author stresses the need to keep letters short and effective. He provides classic phrases to avoid; such as, 'I beg to advise', ' We have before us', 'Enclosed find', 'As regards', ' According to our records', 'Ultimo'. The author stresses the need to write factual letters that match needs and benefits. Lastly, he stresses the invaluable first impression which should be impressive (if you do your homework) . This book is a fine rendition on the art of business letter-writing which many businesspeople fear. This work helps the reader to personalize the process of writing a good letter for whatever purpose." Scarce, Out Of Print, Book.

"Sexy, hedonistic, hilarious—Ann Summers parties are the ultimate girls' night in. They promise the perfect antidote to the toils of everyday life, with lusty lingerie, taboo sex toys, and all manner of randy merchandise. They are the "naughty but nice" version of the classic Tupperware party. The premise of the Ann Summers party is simple: to provide an all-female environment where women can buy sexy lingerie, erotic fashion, sex toys, and other sex-related products. They are incredibly popular: thousands are held every week. But what really goes on at these "special" gatherings, where heterosexual women drink, laugh, shop, play party games, and talk about sex? Do they simply enable women to transgress social taboos in the comfort of their own homes? Or are they also a subtle means of constructing and enforcing heterosexual femininity? Storr develops a new analysis of the ways heterosexual women identify with and against each other—and of what this tells us about gender, sexuality, and consumption in contemporary society. This fascinating and fun book is an indispensable guide to the politics of "post-feminist" culture."
