News from Somewhere

A Reader in Communication and Challenges to Globalization

About the Book

This interdisciplinary collection of articles, each followed by questions for critical reflection, advances debate over the impact of globalization on the current social world across geographic, political, ideological, cultural, and economic boundaries. Twenty-two authors from nine countries explore globalization in contexts of

  • power and powerlessness;
  • acquiescence and resistance;
  • environmental politics;
  • public education and the branding of knowledge;
  • civil rights and protections; and
  • privacy rights and state surveillance.

This book will serve concerned citizens, students, activists, and researchers in communications, international relations, and post-colonial studies.
