This book examines the role of the media in environmental politics and activism in the 21st century. It highlights how politics is mediated in myriad ways through newspapers and news channels, through mobile telephony and through social networking sites. Further, it shows how the media creates and influences relevant discourses, builds campaigns and awareness, and adopts and discards issues.

With a range of perspectives on issues of environmental justice and equity, the volume scrutinizes how the media discourse on environment shapes our politics, and the role of international politics, finance, youth, newspapers, magazines and 24-hour television.

Bringing together academics, activists and media persons, this highly topical book will serve as significant reading for researchers and scholars of development studies and media studies, as well as policymakers, NGOs and environmental campaigners.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A delight to find a volume that blurs disciplinary boundaries, that dares to ask how discourses about development, environment and politics work together . . . focusing centrally on cases from the global South . . . A fascinating set of readings that will help to define a new terrain of research and activism.' - Annabelle Sreberny, Centre for Media and Film Studies, SOAS, University of London
