Summary
"Debates concerning media and democracy around the world are increasingly bringing into question the relations of power between media corporations and the state. These debates are particularly pronounced in South America, where re-democratization since the 1990s and struggles for media power, following the collapse of the military dictatorships, are transforming the public sphere in countries across the continent. Presenting a range of case studies by prominent media and politics scholars, this volume contextualizes the current media landscape in relation to the substantive changes taking place across South America. Such changes involve a new political economy of communication and development, whereby new democracies are fighting to resolve decades of market crises and political instability, challenging the status quo, and where new media spaces are creating avenues for wider pluralism"--
