This book is a critical study of the political economy of communications in India. It explores the ways in which contexts, structures, policies and processes at national and international levels shape media structures and explores how a political economy-inspired approach can be used to understand both media dominance and resistance. It deals with a variety of issues that are key to understanding the political economy of communication--from intellectual property to audio-visual trade and media ownership, liberalisation, privatisation, and media politics. Product Description Review Pradip Ninan Thomas is one of the foremost international experts on the political economy of communications and information...In this new book, he clarifies and explicates a rich tradition of indigenous, information-focused activism against the prevailing neoliberal order and calls for scholars to embrace not only critique but advocacy. A signal achievement! (Dan Schiller) Thomas has deftly divided the book into three sections. The first section deals with the history of structures, the second with processes and means, and the third with resistance. Serious scholars, media professionals and policymakers would benefit abundantly from this work.
