New Media, Old Regimes: Case Studies in Comparative Communication Law and Policy, by Lyombe S. Eko, is a collection of novel theoretical perspectives and case studies in comparative communication law. Through these cases, Eko describes, explains and illustrates how a number of nation-states, transnational, and international organizations employ culture-specific "distillations" of universal principles to resolve tensions between freedom of expression and other societal interests in real space and cyberspace. This study provides essential scholarship on comparative communication law and policy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
New Media, Old Regimes is one of the most interesting and innovative studies of comparative communications law available. Eko's use of a case-study approach to reveal the tensions between different political and cultural systems and their differing concepts of freedom of expression is extremely effective and enlightening. -- Eric Easton, University of Baltimore
This book offers both a contribution to the theoretical foundations of comparative communication law and policy and thought-provoking case studies that illustrate clashes between culturally specific interpretations of communication rights and obligations. -- Manuel Puppis, Univeristy of Zurich, Switzerland
This is a fine book by an able media law scholar, whose research has informed me over the years, especially when I wanted to expand my "reverse perspective" on American law on freedom of speech and the press." -- Kyu Ho Youm, Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication
