In a full examination of the “information revolution,” author Hamid Mowlana deals with this phenomenon in mass communications, telecommunication, and new media as well as in varying contexts such as political, economic, cultural, technological, military, legal, and professional. Thoroughly revised and updated, Global Information and World Communication, Second Edition provides a critical overview of international and intercultural relations. In showing how recent events have challenged basic assumptions and theories, Mowlana enables the debate about communication and world society to embrace broader concepts of world politics, information economy, cultural ecology, and international development. He also illustrates how different communication strategies and systems have contributed to the creation of powerful interests and profoundly altered the global scene. Global Information and World Communication, Second Edition will be essential for students and scholars in communication, media studies, journalism, international relations, political science, sociology, and international development.
