Editorial Reviews

Review

"It presents in-depth policy analyses to outline a vision for how communication technologies have--and still can--impact social change and economic/cultural development. . . . McAnany builds an historical paradigm that melds technology with social entrepreneurship. "-- Communication Booknotes Quarterly

"Saving the World offers a judicious integration of Emile G. McAnany's own first-hand experience with many of the seminal people and projects in communication for development. McAnany provides a very valuable understanding of the underlying structure of the field and how these ideas have been implemented and theorized."--Joseph Straubhaar, author of Media Now: Understanding Media, Culture, and Technology


 

"A comprehensive, ambitious history and policy analysis of the field of development communication. McAnany's grasp of the major developments, issues, and advances of this field will appeal to scholars of communication, sociology, political science, and economics."--Robert Huesca, professor of communication, Trinity University


 
"Savings the World provides a strong history for understanding the context of efforts to use communication to spur development.  McAnany's continuing push for measures that will demonstrate success or failure is welcome.  This volume will be most valuable to those seeking historical context as they delve into the role of information and communication technologies for development."--International Journal of Communication


"Saving the World is a fascinating examination of how earlier technologies were applied to foster social change.  An easy-to-read, well-organized document; while McAnany carefully relays theory, he does it in a concise way that anyone will find accessible."--Technical Communication
