Divina Frau-Meigs, Jérémie Nicey, Patricio Tupper, Michael Palmer and Julia Pohle, editors.

Political Economy, Communication and Knowledge: A Latin American Perspective
C. Bolaño, G. Mastrini & F. Sierra (eds.)
Recent changes in the economic and political world scenario have been dominated by an increasing globalizing process and a constant capital mobilization. This process has left a significant mark on nation-based economies and cultural systems, giving a prominent role to the economic agencies and sectors involved in information and communication industries. The influence and side-effects of this new scenario for public policies in southern countries are just uncertain. This book provides the analytical and conceptual framework from which to explore the issue of political economy of communication.

Philip Lee and Pradip Ninan Thomas, editors.

Mediatization and Religion - Nordic Perspectives
Stig Hjarvard and Mia Lövheim
This book presents new research on the changing relationship between the media, religion and culture from a Nordic perspective, while engaging with the theory of the mediatization of religion. In contemporary society, news journalism, film and television series, as well as new digital media, provide critical commentary on religion while also enabling new forms of religious imagery and interaction.
Picturing Afghanistan: The Photography of Foreign Conflict
This book is an in-depth account of the Euro-American visualization of the conflict in Afghanistan. Comparing images in public affairs, psychological warfare, journalism and the photo-book, the author argues that there are no strong boundaries between photography in war and photography about war.
Corporations and Cultural Industries: Time Warner, Bertelsmann, and News Corporation
This book provides an introduction to the political economy of international media corporations. The author focuses on the growth of three specific media conglomerates: Time Warner, Bertelsmann and News Corporation.
Scandalous! The Mediated Construction of Political Scandals in Four Nordic Countries
S. Allern & E. Pollack (eds.)
The purpose of this book is to spotlight the way in which political scandals in four Nordic countries have been launched, directed, dramatized and interpreted through different genres of journalism – in an interactive tug-of-war between editors and various political actors.
News institutions help to build political careers – and to tear them down. A mediated scandalization process can make the path from power to powerlessness, from a top position to exclusion, very short.
Globalization and Media: Global Village of Babel
This book argues for the central role of media in understanding globalization. Indeed, the author 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 have made the world progressively 'smaller' as nations and cultures come into increasing contact. Decades ago Marshall McLuhan prophesied that media technology would transform the world into a 'global village.' Slowly, fitfully, his vision is being fulfilled.
Migration and New Media: Transnational Families and Polymedia
Mirca Madianou & Daniel Miller
How do parents and children care for each other when they are separated because of migration? The way in which transnational families maintain long-distance relationships has been revolutionised by the emergence of new media such as email, instant messaging, social networking sites, webcam and texting. A migrant mother can now call and text her left-behind children several times a day, peruse social networking sites and leave the webcam for 12 hours achieving a sense of co-presence.
Explorations in New Cinema History - Approaches and case studies
R. Maltby, D. Biltereyst & P. Meers (eds.)
This book is concerned with the circulation and reception of cinema, rather than its prodution. It considers the commercial activities of film distribution and exhibition, the political and legal issues that underpinned them, and the history of cinema's audiences.
