Media, Democracy and European Culture (Book)
Media, Democracy and European Culture presents up-to-date and cutting-edge research on the political and cultural dimension of democracy in Europe and its representation in the media. This interdisciplinary volume brings together the work of some of the most prominent European scholars in media, political science, sociology, cultural studies and law. The contributors explore issues of globalization, the role of the media and communication policy to order to provide a comparative country-to-country look at how the media constructs European identity. This timely and forward-looking collection will be of interest to scholars of media, international and cultural studies.
