THE NO-NONSENSE GUIDE TO GLOBAL MEDIA

From the silver screen to pay-per-view TV, the media are a significant force in society; and never more so than now, in the era of globalization. This No-Nonsense Guide introduces the political economy of the major media – film, television, radio, recording, publishing and the internet – from mega-mergers to new technologies. Author Peter Steven also emphasizes the diversity of local media production and audiences and their responses around the world. He shows us not just the corporate media moguls but slum-dwelling fans of Brazilian soap-style telenovelas as well as those arguing for media democracy.
