Media, Democracy and Freedom: The Post-communist Experience
Marta Dyczok, Oxana Gaman-Golutvina
Peter Lang, 2009 - Political Science - 246 pages
This book does what few other works have done: it examines the role media have played in the larger political, economic and social transformations in the post communist space. An international group of scholars from various disciplines explore the complex relations between media, society, and the state in this region over the past twenty years, and present theoretical arguments that challenge dominant views. They scrutinize changes in the public sphere as well as the media itself, its role, format, agenda and quality in the context of changing values and shifting power relationships.
