What People are Saying About This

Majid Tehranian

This volume serves a dual purpose. On the one hand, it provides fresh scholarship on media democratization from a variety of national, regional, global, and gender perspectives. On the other hand, it raises the level of democratic consciousness for a general public that often feeds on its own biased national media systems.

Andrew Arno

This book . . . stands to become a valuable contribution [to media studies]. It expands our understanding of a tremendously complex and important set of problems in the area of media, globalism, and political culture. Not only do the editors and contributors effectively frame the issues—and the interrelations among the issues—but their work will stimulate discussion across a wide range of readership, and they suggest several fruitful paths of policy development and media activism. . . . The broad cross-cutting issues are considered across the global mediascape of culturally and historically distinct regions and localities.
