International Media Development: Historical Perspectives and New
Edited by Nicolas Benequista, Susan Abbott, Paul Rothman and Winston
New York et al.: Peter Lang, 2019, xvi, 278 pp.


"This collection is the first of its kind on the topic of media
development. It brings together luminary thinkers in the field—both
researchers and practitioners—to reflect on how advocacy groups,
researchers, the international community and others can work to ensure
that media can continue to serve as a force of democracy and
development. But that mission faces considerable challenges. Media
development paradigms are still too frequently associated with Western
prejudices, or out of touch with the digital age. As we move past
Western blueprints and into an uncertain digital future, what does media
development mean? If we are to act meaningfully to shape the future of
our increasingly mediated societies, we must answer this question."
