Normative theories of the media : journalism in democratic societies by Clifford G Christians( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1,416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, five scholars of media and communication take on the task of explicating the role of journalism in democratic societies. Using Fred S. Siebert, Theodore Peterson, and Wilbur Schramm's classic Four Theories of the Press as their point of departure, the authors explore the philosophical underpinnings and the political realities that inform a normative approach to questions about the relationship between journalism and democracy, investigating not just what journalism is but what it ought to be"--Publisher's description

A history of the international movement of journalists : professionalism versus politics by Kaarle Nordenstreng( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A History of the International Movement of Journalists reviews how journalism evolved as a profession since the late nineteenth century and how journalists became internationally organized over the past one hundred and twenty years. The story begins in Antwerp in 1894, when the International Union of Press Associations was founded to link 'press people' of different European countries, continuing in Paris and Geneva in 1926 with the first international association of professional journalists, the Fédération Internationale des Journalistes, leading after World War II to the establishment of a worldwide association, the International Organization of Journalists in Copenhagen in 1946, only to be torn apart by the Cold War, which in 1952 gave rise to the International Federation of Journalists. Each of these associations had difficulties in navigating between professionalism and the politics of their time. This vital part of media history has never before been presented in full"--Publisher's website

Russian mass media and changing values( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a multi-faceted picture of the many complex processes taking place in the field of contemporary Russian media and popular culture. Russian social and cultural life today is strongly individualised and consumers are offered innumerable alternatives; but at the same time options are limited by the new technologies of control which are a key feature of Russian capitalism. Based on extensive original research by scholars in both Russia itself and in Finland, the book discusses new developments in the media industry and assesses a wide range of social and cultural changes, many of which are related to, and to an extent generated by, the media. The book argues that the Russian mass media industry, whilst facing the challenges of globalization, serves several purposes including making a profit, reinforcing patriotic discourse and popularizing liberalized lifestyles. Topics include changing social identities, new lifestyles, ideas of 'glamour' and 'professional values'.Overall, the book demonstrates that the media in Russia is far from homogenous, and that, as in the West, despite new technologies of control, media audiences are being offered a new kind of pluralism which is profoundly influencing Russia's cultural, social and political landscape
Mapping BRICS media by Kaarle Nordenstreng( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mapping BRICS Media brings together distinguished scholars from the BRICS nations to assess the effects of the exponential growth in media in some of the world's fastest growing major economies and examine how the emergence will impact on global media and communication. Transnational in scope and comparative in approach, the book will focus on significant and yet hitherto largely ignored developments in the globalization of media. By interrogating the relationship between the inter-BRICS media and media practices and perceptions, this volume will provide an accessible and comprehensive guide to the complex debates about the impact of the rise of the rest on the media globe"--

Towards equity in global communication?( Book )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book about global communication and equity. It comes as the world of media and communication has drastically changed. The fundamental issues and structures behind digital communication remain basically the same as they have been over the past 50 years. Also the communication problems and policy questions raised since the 1970s at the United Nations have not lost their overall relevance, while new perspectives emerged in moving from the New World Information and Communication Order (NWICO) to the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS). The main issue of the media world is to which extent the resources for communication--both material and mental--are distributed in a fair and equal way between nations and people. New technologies have brought along many new possibilities, but their potential has far from materialized due to social and economic structures. While "imbalance" as the overall theme since the 1970s has been replaced by "digital divide" in the 2010s, the fundamental question is still equity. The book begins by offering a broad overview of communication by two eminent scholars. Johan Galtung's presentation of the triangle State-Capital-Civil Society is a classic in the study of media and society. Majid Tehranian's examination of communication and democracy suggests an exceptionally powerful historical and visionary perspective. The rest of the chapters are either updated from the first edition or new chapters that provide up-to-the-moment appraisals of some of the most important socioeconomic and political issues that affect the world of communication currently. The Appendix provides a complete record of the eleven MacBride Round Tables that were held between 1989 and 1999, a strategic move to carry on the idea of the NWICO in the ecumenical spirit of democratization of communication as advocated by the MacBride Report, Many Voices, One World (1980)
