Communication and Political Crisis : Media, Politics and Governance in a Globalized Public Sphere Hardback

Part of the Global Crises and the Media series

Description

Communication and Political Crisis explores the role of the global media in a period of intensifying geopolitical conflict.

Through case studies drawn from domestic and international political crises such as the conflicts in the Middle East and Ukraine, leading media scholar Brian McNair argues that the digitized, globalized public sphere now confronted by all political actors has produced new opportunities for social progress and democratic reform, as well as new channels for state propaganda and terrorist spectaculars such as those performed by the Islamic State and Al Qaeda.

In this major work, McNair argues that the role of digital communication will be crucial in determining the outcome of pressing global issues such as the future of feminism and gay rights, freedom of speech and media, and democracy itself.
