Description

The word globalization usually evokes strong, mostly negative, emotions. Yet it has brought us cable television and the internet-with a myriad of programmes and services-which have captured the imagination of urban youth.

What is the real meaning of globalization? And which roles do the mass media of communication play in this worldwide process? Are globalised media the forerunners of a global market dominated by some Western powers? Can we stop globalization, and if so how? These are some of the questions, which this book explores. Its contributors present different but balanced views on one of the most crucial issues of our time and place.
