Journalism and Democracy in Asia addresses key issues of freedom, democracy, citizenship, openness and journalism in contemporary Asia, looking especially at China, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, the Philippines and India. The authors take varying approaches to questions of democracy, whilst also considering journalism in print, radio and new media, in relation to such questions as the role of social, political and economic liberalization in bringing about a blooming of the media, the relationship between the media and the development of democracy and civil society, and how journalism copes under authoritarian rule.

With contributions from highly regarded experts in the region examining a broad range of issues from across Asia, this book will be of high interest to students and scholars in political communications, journalism and mass communication and Asian studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Journalism and Democracy in Asia is totally absorbing in every one of its thirteen well written, well researched and knowledgeable chapters.' - John Herbert

'This is a collection for journalism students with a particular interest in what is happening in Asia, but political scientists will need to look elsewhere for systematic studies of the interaction between the media and democratization there.'

- Peter Ferdinand, Centre for Studies in Democratization, Warwick University, UK
