Reviews for Understanding Global Media
'Impressive in scope and execution, Understanding Global Media is superb survey of the major themes and issues that animate the study of global media. Terry Flew provides lively analysis of the ways in which media institutions, policies, technologies, and content are increasingly shaped by global forces.' - Michael Curtin, Professor of Media and Cultural Studies and Director of Global Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA '...nobody has surveyed the phenomenon more thoroughly, or explored its nature and implications with greater clarity, than Terry Flew. This book has established him as the authority on global media - as something of a global brand in himself.' - Andrew Crisell, University of Sunderland, in European Journal of Communication
