This book explores the transformation of Indian media in the context of two major developments: globalisation (which Sociologist Anthony Giddens terms as being `revolutionary') and advances in communication technologies. It is rich in empirical details of how the Indian media has evolved in the past two decades, particularly in the context of potential to transform, construct and nurture particular identities in response to globalisation. The study of the transformation of Indian media is significant because not only has globalisation allowed access to a host of things hitherto represented as `foreign' to Indian culture by the media, but it has also opened the floodgates for foreign media.

Adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, this book looks at the role of media in purveying political, economic and cultural identities, the current definitions of `we', `they', and the `other', and how the `other' is perceived in contemporary India. The discussions cover all forms of media, that is, newspaper, films, radio, television and online media, along with media policy and other economic challenges facing the media.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`Indian Media in a Globalised World' offers a refreshingly academic look at the expanding media. The book, written by Maya Ranganathan and Usha Rodrigues, explores the pressures the media was subjected to as it faced `globalization' and `glocalization'...the book touches all the laterals of the Indian media post globalization...The book is a must read for media students, scholars, media academics and professionals.

-- The Hoot

[The book] provides us with an extensive account of rapidly changing terrain of Indian media...this is a timely work of considerable value for scholars and students...the great strength of this book is to complement the growth range of anthropological and aesthetic material on Bollywood with a thorough rounding out of the contemporary Indian media scene.
