Media and Politics in a Globalizing World

Welcome to the companion website of Media and Politics in a Globalizing World. This site is designed with three sorts of visitors in mind. It’s for people who are particularly interested in one of the topics covered in the book, and who want to read further or do research on something related to that problem. It’s for visitors interested in exploring issues related to media power, but who haven’t read the book. The site gives an idea of what the book offers, and information about where to buy it. Not least, it’s for people who want to contribute with examples not mentioned in the book. Both website and book chart a landscape that is changing constantly, and new actors and problems turn up daily that challenge us to think about media power in different ways. Watch this space - and especially the blogposts - for new examples, research topics, material and things to think about. And help keep up the flow, by sending contributions to info@mediapolitics.net.
