Abstract [en]

The media landscape and the political realm are both sites of change and upheaval. Against a backdrop of globalization and technological revolution, the book examines how the relationship between media and politics is changing, and how power is best understood in contemporary settings. Using a comparative, global approach, it encourages the reader to view problems posed by these changes from different perspectives – those of the politician, the journalist, the activist and the ordinary citizen – and to think about how the relationship between media and politics varies across cultures. Illustrated with contemporary examples throughout, the book weighs up arguments for seeing new developments in terms of change or continuity, as empowering or debilitating, and as promoting or undermining democracy. Suitable for undergraduates and postgraduates studying politics, media and sociology, it is also intended for the general reader who wishes to understand the complex role of the media in political life the world over.
