Reviews

'Rural India has become a model laboratory for global experiments in a new era of market-driven development communication. T. T. Sreekumar's critical and empirically rich study of India's emerging "rural network society" offers a much needed counter-history to the dominant techno-utopian narratives that continue to fuel both policy and scholarly discussions.' - Paula Chakravartty, Associate Professor, Department of Communication, University of Massachusetts
