"The strength of the book resides in data from which the author makes plausible connections to many of the theories that have driven the global/international media studies over the past three decades... the book is a major achievement in the field of global media studies."
I adopted the book because it seemed to fit my course goals. I would not adopt it again. Hard to follow, a lot information which seemed disorganized and often repetitive. Had to drop it in the middle of the semester and work with more practical sources. World Television is this exciting, colorful subject with a lot of players and invested interests where culture and money clash. I was hoping this book will be about it. It was not! And the students agreed too.
