What People are Saying About This

Robert M. Entman

This book, by one of the world's preeminent experts on the international media and communications policy, will help to define the field for years to come. By showing how policy problems often transcend national boundaries as they challenge traditional relationships between the state and the media, Price illuminates a wide range of important theoretical, empirical, and normative issues surrounding the globalization of the communications industry.

Charles E. Phelps

"Just what I would expect from Newhouse -- an elegant tour de force of the essential issues in health economics, technically top rate and at the same time extremely policy relevant. This book will be a wonderful asset to anybody interested in health economics, health policy, or the application of economic thinking to important public policy issues."

Joseph Man Chan

Well grounded, insightful and coherent, Media and Sovereignty provides a powerful analysis of how the state reasserts its influence in, and is influenced by, a rapidly globalizing environment. Price writes with tremendous scope, demonstrating a genuinely global perspective. A must read for students in media policy and international communication.

Geoffrey Cowan

Professor Price brings years of study and thought to this cogent, informative, and gracefully written description of a global media revolution that is far more complex and unresolved than is generally understood. His observations and analysis deserve careful study by students, pundits and policymakers around the world.

Kevin Robins

Technological, market and regulatory changes have brought about a dramatic remapping of the world's media space. In Media and Sovereignty, Monroe Price makes an important and illuminating contribution to thinking through the implications of this media shift, for states and for other national and transnational interest groups. This is a very timely book, and will be of considerable interest to all who are concerned with media culture and policy in global times.

Robert M. Entman, Professor of Communication, North Carolina State University

'Globalization' usually connotes the porousness of national boundaries, the fragmentation of loyalties, and the power of media moguls. Monroe Price is here to remind us of the ways in which the nation-state continues to determine who says what to whom, both domestically and internationally.
