Editorial Reviews


New Media, Old Regimes is one of the most interesting and innovative studies of comparative communications law available. Eko's use of a case-study approach to reveal the tensions between different political and cultural systems and their differing concepts of freedom of expression is extremely effective and enlightening. (Eric Easton, University of Baltimore)

This book offers both a contribution to the theoretical foundations of comparative communication law and policy and thought-provoking case studies that illustrate clashes between culturally specific interpretations of communication rights and obligations. (Manuel Puppis, Univeristy of Zurich, Switzerland)

This is a fine book by an able media law scholar, whose research has informed me over the years, especially when I wanted to expand my "reverse perspective" on American law on freedom of speech and the press."
