What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“Sorely missing in the academic literature on communication was a solid book on  governance. The Mansell-Raboy text repairs this splendidly. Precious reading for those with an interest in policy issues.”
- Cees J. Hamelink, professor emeritus of international communication, University of Amsterdam

"A comprehensive and authoritative resource for understanding key policy issues arising from the Communications Revolution, within a coherent framework shaped by a historical vision and a critical eye. Excellent."
- Denis McQuail, Amsterdam School for Communication
