About this title:

Synopsis: Out of the Darkness of Centuries by David O. Poindexter brings an authoritative voice to the subjects of mass communications, overpopulation, empowerment of women, and entertainment-education. As the world’s leading pioneer in the area of entertainment-education, Poindexter is uniquely qualified to guide the reader through his subject’s rich history, from 1958 through to the present day. Beyond a dry history lesson, however, Out of the Darkness of Centuries underscores the fact that in the competitive world of commercial broadcasting, education-entertainment can deliver an unprecedented social benefit and at the same time maintain ratings, market share, and sales. This book takes the reader through the trial-and-error process whereby entertainment-education methodology was transferred for application in a number of countries worldwide. Written for scholars and those working in international development, this book is an indispensable resource for any student of mass communication.

About the Author: David O. Poindexter has a B.A. from Willamette University, Salem, Oregon, and two advanced degrees from Boston University School of Theology. Mr. Poindexter has forty years of experience working to energize pro-social broadcasting in the U.S. and overseas. He is a pioneer in the development of entertainment-education broadcasting and created the Population Communication Center in 1970, later renamed Population Communications International (PCI). Mr. Poindexter also chaired the U.S. Non-governmental delegation to the 1974 UN World Population Conference in Bucharest, Romania and served as Non-governmental Organization Convener for the 1984 UN International Conference on Population held in Mexico City, as well as the 1994 UN International Conference on Population and Development held in Cairo, Egypt. He currently lives in Beaverton, Oregon, with his wife, who is a retired professor. They have one son.
