Spectacle and Diversity

Spectacle and Diversity: Transnational Media and Global Culture

By Lee Artz

'Spectacle and Diversity: Transnational Media and Global Culture' reveals that as media consolidate and partner across national and cultural boundaries, global culture evolves. Where a company is based geographically no longer determines its outreach or output. The new transnational media industry is universal in its operation, function, and social impact. It reflects a shared transnational culture of consumerism, authoritarianism, cultural diversity, and spectacle.

This book will appeal to a wide range of readers, including students of global studies and international communication at all levels interested in the way transnational media work and how that shapes our culture.
