About the Author:

MINABERE IBELEMA is Associate Professor of Communication Studies, University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA.

Review:

"This book makes a significant contribution to the discussion and debate on the role of the media in the consolidation of democracy in Africa. The author analyzes the topic from a perspective that has been too often ignored by many scholars. The author points out that therole of the pressin [re]orientation and inculcation ofcivic, moral, and other values are important elements in democratic consolidation. It is an outstanding piece of research work for students and scholars of media studies, African studies, political science, historians, and others." - Chris W. Ogbondah, Professor of Journalism, University of Northern Iowa

"With this book, Minabere Ibelema sheds much-needed light on Nigeria s unsung heroes of its democracy movement: the nation s irrepressible media. Ibelema s urging the Nigerian media to take a greater role in disseminating civic values in the public in order to combat cynicism is sure to stir a provocative and necessary debate among observers of the media both in Nigeria and across Africa. Scholars and practitioners promoting democratic deepening in Africa are certain to find this book to be not only an important tool for understanding the Nigerian media, but also a useful roadmap for assisting the Fourth Estate in meeting its democratic responsibilities to the public. Ibelema s work is certain to contribute to a vigorous debate on the civic role of the African press." - Darren Kew, Assistant Professor of Dispute Resolution, University of Massachusetts, Boston.

Book Description Palgrave MacMillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 296 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.6in. x 1.0in.Winner of the Society of Professional Journalists Sigma Delta Chi Award in ResearchThis book explores the thesis that civic cynicism in African countries is a major obstacle to the consolidation of democracy, and that the African press should address the problem not just among leaders, but also among the general populace. Finding that corruption has extended from leaders and governmental institutions to the populace itself, the author asserts that the growing independent press needs to intensify its critique of the public attitude and civic orientation, the fertile soil on which corruption in public life has thrived.
