Description:

The studies in this volume support certain common, perhaps universal conclusions about heroes: All cultures have them; all cultures need them; who or what is considered heroic may vary from culture to culture; the heroes of a culture reflect or define culture values; communication is at the heart of hero creation and maintenance. The array of topics associated with heroes is vast in this global, post September 11th, modern media environment. This volume provides a survey and hopefully stimulates consideration of continuity and change with regard to heroes. Heroes in a Global World is concerned with the role communication processes, practices, and technologies play in developing the form and function of the contemporary hero.
