Global Media and National Policies: The Return of the State

By Terry Flew, Petros Iosifidis, Jeanette Steemers (Eds.)

Conventional wisdom views globalization as a process that heralds the diminishing role or even 'death' of the state and the rise of transnational media and transnational consumption, that defy state control or regulation. This book questions these assumptions and shows that the nation-state never left and is still a force to be reckoned with.
