    Book synopsis: Most of the public and academic debate over the media in Britain focuses on the national state-of-play � as a result, the local media are marginalised or ignored all-together. The second edition of What Do We mean By Local? (edited by John Mair and Richard Lance Keeble with Neil Fowler) tackles that problem head-on: both analysing and celebrating the local media � in its historical, national and international contexts � with all its extraordinary diversity and current dilemmas. Bringing together the work of top academics and journalists, it amounts to the most comprehensive survey of local media in the UK ever published. A number of contributors highlight the rise of hyperlocals across the country. Could the industry be on the cusp of a revival?
