Russia's Liberal Media : Handcuffed but Free, Hardback Book

Description

This book examines the challenges and pressures liberal journalists face in Putin's� Russia.

It presents the findings of an in-depth qualitative study, which included ethnographic observations of editorial meetings during the conflict in Ukraine.

It also provides a theoretical framework for evaluating the Russian media system and a historical overview of the development of liberal media in the country.

The book focuses on some of Russia's most influential liberal national news outlets: "the deadliest" newspaper Novaya Gazeta, "Russia's last independent radio station" Radio Echo of Moscow (Ekho Moskvy) and US Congress-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.

The fieldwork included ethnographic observations of editorial meetings, long interviews with editors and journalists as well as documentary analysis.

The monograph makes theoretical contributions to three main areas: 1.

Media systems and terms of reference. 2. Journalism: cultures, role conceptions, and relationship with power, culture and society. 3. Mediatisation of conflict and nationhood.
