Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'As she sets out in her admirably clear yet detailed and nuanced introduction, Youna Kim's Women and the Media in Asia contains a wide-ranging selection of essays that interrogate a range of ways in which increasing individuation is negotiated in and through the media in Asia. This is a timely project, throwing light on a particular phenomenon that is under-examined, growing rapidly, and complex. In their different ways, the essays examine the question of whether individuation is a requirement forced upon women by globalization and neo-liberal capitalism or a liberatory force, or some complex combination of the two.' - Chris Berry, Goldsmith's, University of London, UK
