This book takes a fresh look at media and communications policy and provides a comprehensive account of issues that are central to the study of the field. It moves beyond the "specifics" of regulation, by examining policy areas that have proved to be of common concern for societies across different socioeconomic realities. It also seeks to address profound gaps in the study of policy by demonstrating the centrality of historical, social, and political context in debates that may appear solely technical or economic. Media Policy and Globalization covers the institutional changes in the communications policy arena by examining the changing role of the state, technology and the market, and the role of civil society. It discusses actual policy areas in broadcasting, telecommunications and the information society and examines the often-overlooked normative dimensions of communications policy. Features*Provides a cross-disciplinary critical perspective of the politics of communications policy-making in a global context*Explores new issues in communications policy such as ethical concerns and the "internationality of policy"*Useful for upper-level undergraduate students, graduate students, and scholars of communications and media studies, and international and global studies

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Globalization and Media Policycombines careful scholarship with a clear, accessible style that creatively integrates some of the best elements of critical theory. The book marks an important step in the development of media policy scholarship because it skillfully integrates political economics and cultural studies perspectives. It does an especially good job of placing research on states and gender theory into the center of policy analysis." - Vincent Mosco, Queen's University
