  7. Review of Media Globalization and the Discovery Channel Networks

    "...The strongest aspect of this book is its excellent, specific history of Discovery channel’s rise. This is good, solid empirical work the kind of which academics oftentimes call for but rarely undertake. Overall, this book is an excellent, specific case study of the rise of Discovery. It spells out the specifics of globalizing television better than any other recent book. It can be of particular use to students in classes on globalization and television."
    --Global Media Journal, Spring 2012

  9. Review of Cities, Citizens, and Technologies

    "This book is beautifully written ... It is refreshing to read such a passionately argued text, obviously the work of someone with a strong sense of social conscience."
    --Media, Culture & Society (David W. Hill, University of York, UK) 

  10. Review of Neoliberalism and Global Cinema

    "In its scope, this is an impres­sive work ... It is not designed to be an easy read, but it is a reward­ing one, and leaves the reader with a long list of films to hunt down and watch. As such, it is a timely aca­d­e­mic work, but also an excit­ing adven­ture in global cin­ema."
