Description - The Media and Globalization by Terhi Rantanen
In this provocative book Terhi Rantanen challenges conventional ways of thinking about globalization and shows how it cannot be understood without studying the role of the media. Rantanen begins with an accessible overview of globalization and the pivotal role of the media, including an introduction to the concepts and theories of globalization. Empirical data on the production and consumption of media and a methodology for relating individual, local experiences to the global picture are also presented. Rantanen has made this complex and huge subject very accessible by using personal histories and pictures to engage the reader.
