"This volume departs from the debilitating deadlock via a new theory of controlled commodification. Informed by political economy, the theory goes beyond the cultural imperialism thesis and the political economy of the media developed for Western contexts. The book offers a comprehensive and nuanced explication of Singapore's print and electronic media. It also critically dissects its culture in an age when media contribute immensely to as well as influence it."--BOOK JACKET.
