Overview

The Global Dynamics of News is an attempt to locate the study of news-perhaps the genre best epitomizing the process of media globalization-within contemporary debate about news flow, transnational media-cultures and globalization.

This book is the first of its kind, bringing together both theoretical essays and case studies that are informed by historical and contemporary debates about issues of media flow and media imperialism specifically, and those of media globalization generally.
