Dr. Mallory Perryman, assistant professor of journalism in the Robertson School of Media and Culture, has published her book "Mediated Democracy: Politics, the News, and Citizenship in the 21st Century" with CQ Press. Dr. Perryman, who also serves as the Robertson School's journalism sequence coordinator, co-wrote the book with Dr. Michael Wagner from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

According to the publishers website, the book "takes a contemporary, communications-oriented perspective on the central questions pertaining to the health of democracies and relationships between citizens, journalists, and political elites. The approach marries clear syntheses of cutting-edge research with practical advice explaining why the insights of scholarship affects students’ lives. With active, engaging writing, the text will thoroughly explain why things are the way they are, how they got that way, and how students can use the insights of political communication research to do something about it as citizens."

"Congratulations to Dr. Perryman on this great scholarly achievement," said Robertson School Director Dr. Marcus Messner. "This book is a very timely and important contribution to our field."
