Routledge Handbook of Chinese Media, Paperback / softback Book

Routledge Handbook of Chinese Media Paperback / softback

Edited by Gary D. Rawnsley, Ming-Yeh T. Rawnsley


The study of Chinese media is a field that is growing and evolving at an exponential rate.

Not only are the Chinese media a fascinating subject for analysis in their own right, but they also offer scholars and students a window to observe multi-directional flows of information, culture and communications within the contexts of globalization and regionalization.

Moreover, the study of Chinese media provides an invaluable opportunity to test and refine the variety of communications theories that researchers have used to describe, analyse, compare and contrast systems of communications.

The Routledge Handbook of Chinese Media is a prestigious reference work providing an overview of the study of Chinese media.

Gary and Ming-yeh Rawnsley bring together an interdisciplinary perspective with contributions by an international team of renowned scholars on subjects such as television, journalism and the internet and social media.

Locating Chinese media within a regional setting by focusing on `Greater China' (the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and overseas Chinese communities; the chapters highlight the convergence of media and platforms in the region, and emphasise the multi-directional and transnational character of media/information flows in East Asia.

Contributing to the growing de-westernisation of media and communications studies, this handbook is an essential and comprehensive reference work for students of all levels and scholars in the fields of Chinese studies and media studies.
