'This is a necessary and very original book that really does address the lack of attention to media in previous discussions about globalization' - James Lull, San Jose State UniversityThere is practically no globalization without media and communications. Yet this relationship is so obvious it is often overlooked. Rantanen challenges conventional ways of thinking about globalization and shows it cannot be understood without studying the role of the media.This book offers:- a clear and accessible overview of globalization and the pivotal role of the media- an introduction to the concepts and theories of globalization- empirical data on the production and consumption of media- a methodology for relating individual, local experiences to the global pictureRantanen has made this complex and huge subject very accessible by using personal histories and pictures to engage the reader. It will be invaluable to students in international media, cultural studies, communications and international relations.
This study examines the converging culture, telecommunications and new media industries in North America. With a broadly political-economic perspective, this work the goes on to provide an account of changes in the aftermath of trade agreements, and sets these changes in a global context.
This book offers a critical, empirically-grounded and contemporary account of how advertisers and agencies are dealing with a volatile mediascape throughout the world, taking a region-by-region approach. It provides a clear, systematic, and synoptic analysis of the dynamic relationship between media, advertisers, and agencies in the age of globalization, and in an era of transition from ‘mass’ to ‘social’ media. Advertising attracts much public criticism for the commercialization of culture and its apparent impact on social and personal life. This book outlines and assesses the issues involved, with regard to how they are manifested in different national, regional and global contexts. Topics covered include: advertising as an object of study global trends in the advertising industry advertising and the media in motion current issues in advertising, media and society advertising, globalization and world regions. While maintaining a contemporary focus, the book explains developments over recent decades as background to the globalisation of what it calls the manufacturing-marketing-media complex.
This lively and accessible book argues for the central role of media in understanding globalization. Indeed, Jack Lule convincingly shows that globalization could not have occurred without media. From earliest times, humans have used media to explore, settle, and globalize their world. In our day, media has made the world progressively "smaller" as nations and cultures come into increasing contact. Yet despite optimistic predictions, the world has not become flat, with playing fields leveled and opportunities for all. Instead, the author argues, globalization and media are combining to create a divided world of gated communities and ghettos, borders and boundaries, suffering and surfeit, beauty and decay. By breaking down the economic, cultural, and political impact of media, and through a rich set of case studies from around the globe, Lule describes a global village of Babel-invoking the biblical town punished for its vanity by seeing its citizens scattered, its language confounded, and its destiny shaped by strife.
This book overviews and reconsiders media organizations - the news agencies - which report and film the news for the press and broadcast media. Incorporating institutional, historical, political economic and cultural studies perspectives, the book: reviews agency provision of general news, video news and financial news; analyzes agency-state relations through periods of dramatic social upheaval; and critically examines the impact of deregulation and globalization on the news agency business. Contributors consider how leading players like Reuters and Associated Press help to define the nature of both the Global and the Local as well as focusing on the network of relations between international and national agencies. The book also takes into account the attempts by some national news agencies to establish radically different news agendas. Demonstrating how the news agencies have contributed both to the process of globalization and, simultaneously, to the process of national construction, this book provides an important critical survey of the contemporary international news business.
Communication between nations is being transformed in ways unthinkable even a generation ago. As the pace of this revolution increases so does the need to address the impact of this process on culture and society. International Communication and Globalization provides an essential and timely survey of the area. The contributors trace the development of international communication while also offering new approaches to this complex and rapidly-growing field of media and communication studies. The essays in this volume scrutinize the impact of market relations, deregulation, and technology of the countries of the Third World, as well as the ethics of the global communication industry. This collection offers a range of perspectives on the relationship between the globalization of process and international communication and, as such, makes an important intervention in current debates about media, technology, and society. International Communication and Globalization is an essential resource for all students of communication, media, and international relations.
