The book has many strengths, most notably, wide representation among countries and regions as case studies and a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including sociology, political science, culture, and communication studies. Journal of Communication This is a far-ranging and penetrating excursion into the vast and rapidly expanding territory of information and communication policy, very thoroughly analysing the casual links in its development and its conceptual basis in neoliberalism and postmodernism, and questioning the appropriateness of the market-place metaphor. Journal Of Multilingual & Multicultural Development If we are to define poverty as the inability to participate fully in the society in which we are members, and if our media and communication technologies are a crucial precondition of such participation, then there is no longer any meaningful dividing line to be drawn between media policy and social policy. This excellent collection brings together a formidable array of international scholars to address that interface. It is timely and important, and it might even make a difference. -- Roger Silverstone, London School of Economics and Political Science
