New Internationalist books and publications

Introduces readers to the political economy of the major media – film, television, radio, recording, publishing, and the internet – looking at the concentration of ownership and the convergence of technologies and media functions.

While examining the dominant media Peter Steven emphasizes the diversity of local media production and media audiences around the world. He encourages us to question how the media reflects society: are we passive recipients, or do we have a part in constructing the world?

About the Author: Peter Steven is a freelance writer based in Toronto, Canada. He has been film columnist for the New Internationalist and The Beaver magazines, and Associate Editor of Jump Cut magazine.
