The Orphan Sky by Ella Leya

Original Title: The Orphan Sky

Set at the crossroads of Turkish, Persian and Russian cultures under the red flag of Communism in the late 1970s, The Orphan Sky reveals one woman's struggle to reconcile her ideals with the corrupt world around her, and to decide whether to betray her country or her heart. Leila is a young classical pianist who dreams of winning international competitions and bringing awards to her beloved country Azerbaijan. She is also a proud daughter of the Communist Party. When she receives an assignment from her communist mentor to spy on a music shop suspected of traitorous Western influences, she does it eagerly, determined to prove her worth to the Party. But Leila didn't anticipate the complications of meeting Tahir, the rebellious painter who owns the music shop. His jazz recordings, abstract art, and subversive political opinions crack open the veneer of the world she's been living in. Just when she begins to fall in love with both the West and Tahir, her comrades force her to make an impossible choice.

Running Toward Illumia by Angel Leya

Original Title: Running Toward Illumia

Astrea would do just about anything to feel like she belongs--even hunt a unicorn to feed her starving tribe. But when her guilt and the promise of a curse gets the better of her, she'll do everything in her power to free the unicorn. Even if it means taking away the last hope of meat in the midst of a famine and leaving behind her foggy homeland to return the unicorn to the safety of Illumia. And Illumia is nowhere she wants to go, being the land her parents were banned from. The problem is, she can hear the unicorn talking, though no one else can, a handsome and mysterious elf joins her and the snarky unicorn, sending her emotions careening, and someone is following them. Just when she thinks things can't get any worse, she finds out that her parents have been keeping a secret from her, and the revelation ruins every hope of fitting in. Her homeland is now inhospitable in every possible way, and the once comforting fog becomes a smothering blanket that promises death. It's a race to escape and a struggle to put everything right. And Astrea is running out of time. Running Toward Illumia contains all 4 previously published parts - Banned, Lost, Drenched, and Marked - and is the first book in the Illumia series.

Handbook Of Social Media Management by Mike Friedrichsen

Original Title: Handbook Of Social Media Management

Digitization and Web 2.0 have brought about continuous change from traditional media management to new strategic, operative and normative management options. Social media management is on the agenda of every media company, and requires a new set of specialized expertise on digital products and communication. At the same time, social media has become a vibrant field of research for media economists and media management researchers. In this handbook, international experts present a comprehensive account of the latest developments in social media research and management, consistently linking classical media management with social media. The articles discuss new theoretical approaches as well as empirical findings and applications, yielding an interesting overview of interdisciplinary and international approaches. The book’s main sections address forms and content of social media; impact and users; management with social media; and a new value chain with social media. The book will serve as a valuable reference work for researchers, students and professionals working in media and public relations.

Who Owns The World S Media by Eli M. Noam

Original Title: Who Owns The World S Media

Media ownership and concentration has major implications for politics, business, culture, regulation, and innovation. It is also a highly contentious subject of public debate in many countries around the world. In Italy, Silvio Berlusconi's companies have dominated Italian politics. Televisa has been accused of taking cash for positive coverage of politicians in Mexico. Even in tiny Iceland, the regulation of media concentration led to that country's first and only public referendum. Who Owns the World's Media? moves beyond the rhetoric of free media and free markets to provide a dispassionate and data-driven analysis of global media ownership trends and their drivers. Based on an extensive data collection effort from scholars around the world, the book covers thirteen media industries, including television, newspapers, book publishing, film, search engines, ISPs, wireless telecommunication and others, across a ten to twenty-five year period in thirty countries. In many countries--like Egypt, China, or Russia--little to no data exists and the publication of these chapters will become authoritative resources on the subject in those regions. After examining each country, Noam and his collaborators offer comparisons and analysis across industries, regions, and development levels. They also calculate overall national concentration trends beyond specific media industries, the market share of individual companies in the overall national media sector, and the size and trends of transnational companies in overall global media. This definitive global study of the extent and impact of media concentration will be an invaluable resource for communications, public policy, law, and business scholars in doing research and also for media, telecom, and IT companies and financial institutions in the private sector.
