Review:

"The merits of this book rest firmly on its empirical foundations. It builds a fine, complex, multifaceted theoretical argument on this basis, and the empirical work could hardly exist except as it rises out of the author's political and media theories and concerns. Ultimately it is the archieve it assembles that is likely to ensure its continuing value for anyone who wishes to understand an especially vital and turbulent moment in Mexico's history, and how media technologies can play a role in so major a transformation." - Professor Bob Hodge Fellow of the Australian Academy of Humanities, Researcher, Centre for Cultural Studies University of Western Sydney, Australia "The theoretical and methodological approaches of the research open a space for inquiry that promises new developments applicable to other contexts and circumstances." - Dr. Jose Manuel Ramos Rodriguez Profesor Investigador Benemerita Universidad Autonoma de Puebla "There are no facile generalizations here, so the work will be of genuine interest to a specialized audience." - Rodney Williamson, Ph. D. Full professor of Spanish Department of Modern Languages University of Ottawa"
