9780205402427: Comparing Media from Around the World

Featuring an innovative organization and in-depth research, Comparing Media from Around the World discusses how media systems are similar and different across the globe.  This book discusses the fundamental elements of media systems and shows how they are used in eight sample countries. Unlike other books, it is organized according to media elements, with comparative discussions of all eight countries within each chapter. This helps readers make connections and comparisons between the countries and allows them to apply the concepts to other countries not discussed in the book. Comparing Media from Around the World also features exciting photographs from the sample countries showing not only the media but how they are experienced in context (for example, a newspaper stand in France and an internet cafe in Ghana).

From the Back Cover:

Comparing Media from Around the World discusses the fundamental elements of media systems and shows how they are used in eight sample countries (France, Sweden, the UK, the USA, México, China, Ghana, and Lebanon). Unlike other texts, it is organized according to media elements, with comparative discussions of all eight countries within each chapter. This helps students make connections and comparisons between the countries and allows them to apply the concepts to other countries not discussed in the text.

Features

  • Each chapter discusses a single element of a media system (for example, financing of media) and compares it across media systems in eight countries, allowing students to make comparisons of countries within each chapter.
  • Photos of media from eight countries, most taken specifically for this text, provide examples of newspapers, radio listings, television shows, Web sites, and more, helping students see how media systems operate in other countries.
  • Five Primer questions begin each chapter, helping students establish their own baseline of knowledge about the subject of the chapter and prime their curiosity.
  • An accessible writing style with many clear examples makes the material comprehensible and interesting to students.

Praise for Comparing Media from Around the World

This book effectively combines comparative systems analysis and rhetorical understanding in a thoughtful and engaging examination of eight representative national media systems. It is clearly written, immediately engaging and especially relevant under conditions of globalization.
Harry W. Haines, Trinity University

There is currently nothing like this kind of in-depth, cross-comparative analysis available in the textbook literature, and therefore the author’s work makes an important contribution. It’s clear this scholar has a nuanced and extensive knowledge of the field of global and international communication, and that he understands the complexities of global communication along its economic, political, and cultural dimensions.
John L. Sullivan, Muhlenberg College
