Discusses the players, theories, and trends that affect how the world communicates and gets their information
This book is the most definitive text on multinational communication and media conglomerates, exploring how global media influences both audiences and policy makers around the world. Comprehensively updated to reflect the many fast moving developments associated with this dynamic field, this new edition investigates who and where certain cultural products are coming from and why, and addresses issues and concerns about their impact all over the world.
Global Communication: Theories, Stakeholders and Trends, 5th Edition is framed by two theories. One is World System Theory (WST), which views nations through an economic lens. The other, Electronic Colonialism Theory (ECT), views nations through a cultural lens. Through these theories, the book examines broadcasting, mass media, and news services ranging from MSNBC, MTV, and CNN to television sitcoms and Hollywood export markets. It investigates the roles of the major players, such as News Corp, Sony, the BBC, Disney, Bertelsmann, Viacom, or Time Warner, and probes the role of advertising and the Internet and their ability to transcend national boundaries and beliefs. New chapters look at the growing importance and significance of other major regions such as the media in the Middle East, Europe, and Asia.
