May 24, 2008
May 24, 2008, Greencastle, Ind. - Kevin Howley, associate professor of communication at DePauw University, contributes a book review to the latest issue of the Mediterranean edition of Global Media Journal. Dr. Howley offers a three-page analysis of Democratizing Global Media: One World, Many Struggles, which was edited by Robert A. Hackett and Yuezhi Zhao and published by Rowman & Littlefield.
Calling the book an "ambitious project," Howley notes that Hackett and Zhao "have assembled an international team of scholars and journalists whose unique perspectives contribute to a timely and revealing examination of the global struggle for communicative democracy ... In their introductory essay, the editors signal their intention to promote dialogue and debate between communication scholars, cultural analysts, political scientists and others interested in the relationship between media and democracy. To that end, Zhao and Hackett's introduction places the current volume in ongoing debates over global communication and presents a convincing rationale for its interdisciplinary orientation."
