The third edition of International Communication examines the profound changes that have taken place, and are continuing to take place at an astonishing speed, in international media and communication. Building on the success of previous editions, this book maps out the expansion of media and telecommunications corporations within the macro-economic context of liberalisation, deregulation and privitisation. It then goes on to explore the impact of such growth on audiences in different cultural contexts and from regional, national and international perspectives. Each chapter contains engaging case studies which exemplify the main concepts and arguments.

The writing is clear and the tone is appropriate. It speaks to students as well as about its topic. This is important... Case studies are useful moments for reflection and development that permit a recap of key issues in relation to a specific institution or practice --Neil Curtis, Associate Professor of Culture, Film and Television, University of Nottingham, UK
The level is just right... it is very well written in a style that is both engaging and accessible. --Anders Hansen, Senior Lecturer, Department of Media and Communication, University of Leicester, UK
Daya Kishan Thussu, Professor of International Communication, University of Westminster, UK and the founder and managing editor of the journal Global Media and Communication.
