Twenty Africanist scholars and practitioners have written twenty-three original chapters specifically for this text. The subject matter covers a wide array of issues ranging from philosophical-conceptual and methodological discussions to audience media patterns, as well as new directions for communication and national development. The engaging and provocative essays in this volume utilize case studies of selected African countries to survey audience media use patterns in these developing countries. Communication and the Transformation of Society serves as a standard text for international communication, communication and national development, and other related courses that deal with communication and change on the undergraduate and graduate levels.
