Rezensionen
"This book certainly makes progress in establishing credible and well-researched literature in an underdeveloped academic and professional discipline. It not only gives clarity and backing from pre-established theoretical approaches on how to better understand the imminent importance of media management, but also covers a cohesive range of factors, both internal and external, that impact management in practice." (Melissa Katherine Louie, Fudan Journal of the Humanities and Social Sciences, Vol. 11, 2018)
