What does it mean that we can be reached on our mobile
phones wherever we are and at all times? What are the
cultural consequences if we are informed about
-everything and anything important- via television? This
book deals with questions like these in a refreshingly
straightforward and readable way. -Cultures of
mediatization- are described as cultures whose main
resources are mediated by technical media. To understand
this challenging media change it is inappropriate to
focus on any one single medium like television, the
press, mobile phones, the Internet or other forms of
digital media. One has to capture the -mediatization- of
culture in its entirety. Cultures of Mediatization
outlines how this can be done critically. In so doing, it
offers a new way of thinking about our present-day media-

This book takes a critical step back from popular

first balanced, scholarly engagement of this popular
medium. In this timely and comprehensive introduction, the
author not only discusses Twitter’s role in our

historical line between the telegraph and Twitter to
reflect on changes in social communication over time. The
book thoughtfully examines Twitter as an emergent global
communications medium and provides a theoretical

The contributors to this book bring different theoretical
lenses to the question of social change and
organizations. Some are anchored in more macro accounts
of how and why social change processes occur, while
others approach the question from a more psychological or
social psychological perspective. Many of the chapters in
the book travel across levels of analyses, making their
accounts of social change good examples of multi-level
theorizing. Some scholars are practiced and immersed in
thinking about organizational phenomena through a
positive lens, for others it was a total adventure in
trying on a new set of glasses. However, connecting all
contributing authors was an excitement and willingness to
explore new insights and new angles on how to explain and
cultivate social change within or across organizations.

This study explains how companies often pay too much -
and never realize goals of increased performance and
market strength - in their quest to acquire other
companies. The author also provides a formal definition
for synergies, or the specific increases in performance
which the combined companies can realistically expect
through acquisition. This expose argues that the tendency
of managers to succumb in acquisitions often leads to
disastrous ends in the hyper-competitive marketplace, and
that companies must meticulously plan - and account for
huge uncertainties - when deciding to enter the mergers
