  1. Bibliography 14 items
    What follows is intended as an introduction; it should not be regarded as fully comprehensive, as this is an area of study where new material is being written all the time. Books are not the only resource available. You should be prepared to investigate journals and magazines. There will be an expectation that you refer to newspapers, both broadsheet and tabloid, and to football magazines, fanzines, and football ephemera. There is much useful material available on the Internet. Equally, you will be expected to watch appropriate TV programmes. I have not grouped this bibliography by topic, as I want you to give it due consideration and sample across the board. Which books you choose to access will depend on the topics you decide to pursue for assessment purposes. As each of you is accessing this module from a different academic base, each of you will need to explore different texts. If you feel you do not have a sound media theory background, you may wish to focus on this first grouping of texts.
