Media in the Global Context: Applications and Interventions

Media in the Global Context: Applications and Interventions

Edited by Emmanuel K. Ngwainmbi

This book investigates ways in which global media coverage of conflicts affects the worldviews of the social and cultural values of nationals from the war regions. It identifies the cultural patterns in remote communities that have been ‘diluted’ by IT and the extent to which the changes impacted the values of the indigenes. It also describes the role that IT especially social media and broadcast media play in the understanding of war among residents in highly wired and remote communities, respectively.
