Description - Finding the Right Place on the Map by Karol Jakubowicz
"Finding the Right Place on the Map" is a cross-cutting, international comparison of the media systems and the democratic performance of the media in post-Communist countries. It explores issues of commercial media, social exclusion, and consumer capitalism in a comparative East-West perspective.Each chapter considers a different aspect of the trends and problems surrounding the media in comparative European and global perspectives. The result is a creative collaboration of leading authors from East and West that covers a rich array of controversial subjects in a comprehensive manner. The topics range from the civil society approach to media and public service broadcasting to journalism cultures, fandom and representation of poverty and gender that reinforce social exclusion and legitimize consumer capitalism. "Finding the Right Place on the Map" is a unique, up-to-date overview of what media transformation has meant for Post-Communist countries in nearly two decades.Strong comparative Eastern European-Western European and Eastern European-Chinese comparisons offer cutting-edge scholarship.
The creative collaboration of leading authors in the field from East and West results in a unique and unusual book. The book covers a rich array of controversial topics in a comprehensive manner.
