Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

An established and well-respected resource for students and scholars of global journalism for more than a decade, The World News Prism is now available in a fully-revised and updated ninth edition. Featuring three all new chapters on Brazil, Russia, and India and a revised chapter on the Middle East written by regional media experts, this new edition charts media revolutions occurring throughout the world and examines their effects both locally and globally. The new edition has also been updated to include comprehensive coverage of the growing impact of social media on how news is being reported and received.

From tweets that spark uprisings, to state-mandated censorship, The World News Prism: Digital, Social and Interactive provides the most up-to-date and inclusive analysis of transnational news media in the 21st century. --This text refers to the paperback edition.


“This is a welcome update to a favorite resource. Specialized emphasis on the media environments in Brazil, Russia, India and the Middle East make important contributions to this valuable text.”
Emily Metzgar, Indiana University

“Another superb edition…this time with more diverse voices from around globe and a crucial emphasis on new media without neglecting historical global media industries, political events and economic structures.”
Jad Melki, American University of Beirut, Lebanon

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
