Books about China's media and communications are far and few between. In particular, quality scholarly books about China's media and communication that demonstrate solid substance, provide thoughtful analyses, and reflect on conceptual and theoretical orientatioins are even more rarely seen. This book...is one of the very few recently published books that present excellent studies about China's media and communication. [It] has filled a large part of the gap in studies on international communication in general and on Chinese media and communication in particular.--The China Review, vol. 2, no. 1, 2001, pp. 175-8.Was this review helpful?

This book will certainly join its two predecessors, 'Voices of China: The Interplay of Politics and Journalism' and 'China's Media, Media's China,' as the most important works on the Chinese media that have ever been published outside China. --Asian Journal of Communication, vol. 11, no. 1, 2001, pp. 173-5.Was this review helpful?

Richly detailed analyses of such issues as the increasing influence of advertisers in China; the continuing efforts of the Communist Party to direct editorial content; the inability of the party to control the growth of journalistic diversity, media, and the Chinese legal system; China's emerging telecommunications policy; the impact of Hong Kong television on the residents in South China;the paradox of regime change and press freedom in Hong Kong; and the mainland Chinese news in Taiwan's press. This volume is the result of fieldwork conducted within China's media organizations that until recently would have been impossible. Professor Jeremy Tunstall writes: 'Fascinating new data and expert commentary on China's giant mix of market and Marxist media. A must-read for students of world media.'Was this review helpful?
