Description - De-Westernizing Media Studies by James Curran
In a series of case studies from Asia, Africa, North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and Australia, the contributors explore relationships between media, power and society in a variety of regional and national contexts, and the effects of globalization. They also confront the limitations of conventional media and globalization theory in understanding these relationships. Individual chapters discuss media systems and media power in: * China *Central and Eastern Europe *South America *Middle East *Russia *Korea *Taiwan *Malaysia *Zimbabwe *Eg ypt States *Britain *Australia *Sweden *Italy *South Africa *India *Israel *France De-Westernizing Media Studies is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the relationship between mass communication and society in an era of globalization. It provides a comprehensive and challenging response to a key debate of our time: whether globalization is a force for bad, undermining democracy, imposing cultural uniformity and weakening popular movements based on organized labor, or a force for good, empowering minorities and promoting solidarity between people.
