This provocative book takes a new approach toward understanding the uneven flows of global communications, focusing on areas of the state, the market, and society. Wielding a political-economic view of communication and culture, this international group of authors follows interesting developments, from communication NGOs in Africa to affirmative action in India's information technology job market. Other cases spotlight China, Singapore, Venezuela, Palestine, Arab nations, Ghana, Canada, the United States, Russia, and the European Union. Theoretically driven and empirically grounded, Global Communications avoids alarmist or celebratory approaches.
