Remaking Media : The Struggle to Democratize Public Communication
From two renowned authors in the field comes this unique and timely reading of the contemporary struggle to democratize communication. With a focus on activism directed towards challenging and changing media content, practices and structures, the book explores the burning question: What is the political significance and potential of democratic media activism in the western world today? Taking an innovative approach, Hackett and Carroll pay attention to an emerging social movement that appears at the cutting edge of cultural and political contention, and ground their work in three scholarly traditions that provide interpretive resources for the study of democratic media activism: political theories of democracy; critical media scholarship; and the sociology of social movements. "Remaking Media" examines the democratization of the media and the efforts to transform the "machinery of representation". Such an examination will prove invaluable not only to media and communication studies students, but also to students of political science.
