Editorial Reviews

Review

"Reorienting Global Communication meets an urgent need in the fields of media globalization and international cultural studies by providing an in-depth examination of the Indian and Chinese media industries and the changing concepts of 'nation' and 'home' in an increasingly globalized world.”--Shujen Wang, author of Framing Piracy: Globalization and Film Distribution in Greater China

Book Description

Emphasizing the global nature of Indian and Chinese film, television, and digital media, Reorienting Global Communication: Indian and Chinese Media Beyond Borders provides a diverse mix of alternative perspectives that collectively shift the discussion of media globalization away from Hollywood and New York. Essays cover topics such as the influence of transnational Indian families on the narrative elements of Bollywood productions, the rise of made-in-China blockbusters, the development of pan-Asian cinema, and migrants' use of the Internet to maintain connections with their homelands.
