Series: Shaping Inquiry in Culture, Communication and Media Studies
This book re-visits how we think about communication and power in the global era. It takes stock of the last fifty years of scholarship, maps key patterns and concepts and sets an agenda for theory and research.
The book addresses such questions as:
• How are national and cultural identities re-fashioned and expressed in the global era?
• How can we best understand the emergence of multiple and sometimes antagonistic modernities worldwide?
