What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
“Ingrid Volker has collected an admirably rich, thought-provoking and diverse collection of views to guide critical scholarship as our topic (‘the media’ and ‘media cultures’), methods (which must now be comparative) and the knowledge we produce are all transformed by globalisation.”
- Sonia Livingstone, author of Media Regulation: Governance and the interests of citizens and consumers

“In this Handbook, leading academic and practitioner analysts give us valuable insight into globalized forms of communication, their diversity, the global/local dialectic, and the challenges of critical historical and comparative study of transnational media and communication.”
- Robin Mansell, author of Imagining the Internet: Communication, Innovation and Governance

"With a stellar list of contributors and an engagement with the global that both traces and transcends its boundaries, Ingrid Volkmer's volume is the cardinal chart of our media worlds."
- Mark Deuze, author of Media Life and Media Work

“This is a long-overdue volume.  The distinguished contributors to The Handbook of Global Media Research have produced a challenging and authoritative guide to understanding the latest developments in global media.”
- Thomas R. Lindlof, University of Kentucky
