*The Media and Austerity
Comparative perspectives
Edited by Laura Basu, Steve Schifferes and Sophie Knowles
The Media and Austerity examines the role of the news media in
communicating and critiquing economic and social austerity
measures in Europe since 2010. From an array of comparative,
historical and interdisciplinary vantage points, this edited
collection seeks to understand how and why austerity came to be
perceived as the only legitimate policy response to the financial
crisis for nearly a decade after it began.

Drawing on an international range of contributors with
backgrounds in journalism, politics, history and economics, the
book presents chapters exploring differing media
representations of austerity from UK, US and European
perspectives. It also investigates practices in financial journalism
and highlights the role of social media in reporting public
responses to government austerity measures. They reveal that,
without a credible and coherent alternative to austerity from the
political opposition, what had been an initial response to the
consequences of the financial crisis, became entrenched between
2010 and 2015 in political discourse.

The Media and Austerity is a clear and concise introduction for
students of journalism, media, politics and finance to the
connections between the media, politics and society in relation
to the public perception of austerity after the 2008 global
financial crash.
