Edited by Nick Mahony, Janet Newman and Clive Barnet.

This book rethinks the public, public communication and public action in a globalising and mediated world. It looks at how publics are brought into being and how to develop research agendas into their formation. It offers a rich set of methodological resources on which other researchers can draw and explores the boundaries between theory, research and politics.

It presents a series of theoretically innovative case studies examining the processes of personalizing, claiming, mediating and belonging through which publics come to be known in particular forms.
