Owning the Olympics : narratives of the new China by Monroe E Price( )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the moment they were announced, the Beijing Games were a major media event and the focus of intense scrutiny and speculation. In contrast to earlier such events, however, the Beijing Games are also unfolding in a newly volatile global media environment that is no longer monopolized by broadcast media. The dramatic expansion of media outlets and the growth of mobile communications technology have changed the nature of media events, making it significantly more difficult to regulate them or control their meaning. This volatility is reflected in the multiple, well-publicized controversies characterizing the run-up to Beijing 2008. According to many Western commentators, the People's Republic of China seized the Olympics as an opportunity to reinvent itself as the "New China"--A global leader in economics, technology, and environmental issues, with an improving human-rights record. But China's maneuverings have also been hotly contested by diverse global voices, including prominent human-rights advocates, all seeking to displace the official story of the Games. Bringing together a distinguished group of scholars from Chinese studies, human rights, media studies, law, and other fields, Owning the Olympics reveals how multiple entities-including the Chinese Communist Party itself-seek to influence and control the narratives through which the Beijing Games will be understood"--Publisher's description
Media and sovereignty : the global information revolution and its challenge to state power by Monroe E Price( )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Media have been central to government efforts to reinforce sovereignty and define national identity, but globalization is fundamentally altering media practices, institutions, and content. More than the activities of large conglomerates, globalization entails competition among states as well as private entities to dominate the world's consciousness. Changes in formal and informal rules, in addition to technological innovation, affect the growth and survival or decline of governments." "In Media and Sovereignty Monroe Price focuses on emerging foreign policies that govern media in a world where war has information as well as military fronts. Price asks how the state, in the face of institutional and technological change, controls the forms of information reaching its citizens. He also provides a framework for analyzing the techniques used by states to influence populations in other states. Price draws on an international array of examples of regulation of media for political ends, including "self-regulation," media regulation in conflict zones, the control of harmful and illegal content, and the use of foreign aid to alter media in target societies."--Jacket
A communications cornucopia : Markle Foundation essays on information policy by Monroe E Price( )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this book provide a broad look at the many ways that information technology relates to issues of governance and public policy. Adjusting regulatory institutions to the new technical realities is a great challenge. Will monopoly power threaten the traditionally regulated areas of telephones and cable television or the software systems that integrate all information technologies into a single system with many competing players? Can traditional approaches to intellectual property rights and control of socially harmful content be applied to the converged information sector? This book sheds light on these issues, and in so doing demonstrates the usefulness of rigorous, multidisciplinary policy analysis in assessing the significance of changing technology

11 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The V-Chip Debate, Monroe E. Price has gathered an international set of contributors from government, academe, and industry to discuss the origins and development of the V-chip and its certain destiny to alter not just programming and broadcasting policies but law and public policy as well. The essays in this timely volume contrast the approaches in Canada and the United States in terms of the role of regulatory agency, industry, and government, as well as discuss existing television rating systems throughout the world." "While the concept of the V-chip is simple, its implications are varied and complex. For all involved in media policy and law, this volume provides a unique perspective on the V-chip debate, and brings to the forefront a critical topic certain to have monumental impact on public policy for years to come."--Jacket

Routledge handbook of media law by Monroe E Price( )

18 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Featuring specially commissioned chapters from experts in the field of media and communications law this book provides an authoritative survey of media law from a comparative perspective. The handbook will not simply offer a synopsis of the state of affairs in media law jurisprudence. Rather it will provide a better understanding of the forces that generate media rules, norms, and standards, perpetuate them, and foster change in them against the background of major transformations in the way information is mediated as a result of democratization, economic development, cultural change, globalization and technological innovation. The book addresses a range of issues including: media law and evolving concepts of democracy network neutrality and traffic management public service broadcasting in Europe Interception of communication and surveillance in Russia State secrets, leaks and the media. A variety of rule-making institutions are considered, including administrative, and judicial entities within and outside of government, but also entities such as associations and corporations that generate binding rules. The book assesses the emerging role of supranational economic and political groupings as well as of non-Western models, such as China and India, where cultural attitudes toward media freedoms are often very different. Monroe E. Price is Director of the Center for Global Communication Studies at the Annenberg School for the University of Pennsylvania and Joseph and Sadie Danciger Professor of Law and Director of the Howard M.

Cable television: a guide for citizen action by Monroe E Price( Book )

8 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When commercial radio began broadcasting, some citizens saw it as a new "golden age," offering vast opportunities for educational and public service programing. These dreams did not come true because it was more profitable to sell advertising. The same pattern occured with broadcast television. Cable television provides a third chance, and this book is written to help citizen groups make the most of it. It describes some potential public uses for cable and points to existing cable channels which are serving their communities. It suggests things to look for in a franchise, how to improve an existing service, and how regulatory agencies work. It makes clear ways in which citizens groups with little technological experience can make use of cable. Appendices include: proposed Federal Communications Commission rules for cable television systems; a bibliography; a list of organizations that can help citizen groups; production costs for public access programing; cable franchises and regulations; and a plan for a big city cable system.

Speech and society in turbulent times : freedom of expression in comparative perspective by Monroe E Price( Book )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores how societies are addressing challenging questions about the relationship between expression, traditional and societal values, and the transformations introduced by new information communications technologies. It seeks to identify alternative approaches to the role of speech and expression in the organization of societies as well as efforts to shape the broader global information society. How have different societies or communities drawn on the ideas of philosophers, religious leaders or politicians, both historical and contemporary, that addressed questions of speech, government, order or freedoms and applied them, with particular attention to applications in the digital age? The essays include a wide variety of cultural and geographic contexts to identify different modes of thinking. The goal is to both unpack the 'normative' internet and free expression debate and to deepen understanding about why certain internet policies and models are being pursued in very different local or national contexts as well as on a global level
Rights of access to the media( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As broadcasting systems are transformed - both in societies making a post-communist transition and in the rest of Europe and the United States - opportunities for "access" are frequently put forward and debated. But little is done to analyze what is meant by access and how the concept fits into a theoretical framework. Access issues proliferate, not only from the new statutes concerning broadcasting licenses, but for cable television regimens and for the information infrastructures of the future. Access becomes the hope of social groups, religious organizations, politicians - redemptive in its impact on the democratic process. Given the range of uses, given the consequences imputed to access in the broadcasting field, more attention to its various meanings is long overdue. This volume of essays is a partial answer. The book has its origins in a conference held in June 1993 at the Institute for Constitutional and Legislative Policy at the Central European University in Budapest. The purpose of the conference was to gather scholars with a commitment to exploring the theoretical and actual implications of various access regimens as they have been or were then being practiced or proposed. The time was a vital one as debates continued throughout the region on the shape of proposed broadcasting legislation. The conference offered an opportunity to review the political context in which access was being considered at a raw and early moment in the transitions to democracy. Hungary was still deadlocked in its "media wars" - a confrontation between the major political parties over the course of society in which the conduct and control of broadcasting was seen as a defining issue. The Czech Republic had just split from its Slovak counterpart and the implications for the role of broadcasting in the building of a nation were self-evident. Problems of hate speech and lustration - a negative form of access, namely access by society to information about the personal past of public figures - compounded the difficulty of policy-making. Access issues yielded concerns about privatization since the ownership of instruments of the press is a key factor in access; and that affected the choice of licensees, the conditions under which they should operate, whether and to what extent foreign investment should be allowed. All of these were questions pending. The inevitable underlying problem was the role of the state in establishing rules, maintaining a hand in writing the narratives of continuity and, indeed, in letting go and fostering the processes of change. The responses are organized in four sections: theories of media access; access to media in Europe and the United States; judicial review of access to the media; the media and the political arena. But the contributions do not fit neatly within these categories and, as a result, some discussion of almost all the issues will be found in each paper
