About the Authors
  • Combining original research with comparative and theoretical analysis, Kevin Howley examines a number of different community media such as radio, television, and print media, and looks at the way they impact on the lives of those who produce and consume them. He also addresses broader theoretical and philosophical issues such as the part community media can play in promoting participatory democracy and giving the socially and economically disadvantaged access to the public sphere.

    • Balances a theoretically informed discussion of community media with engagingly presented empirical detail
    • Situates a comprehensive discussion of community media in terms of the global struggle for communicative democracy
    • Includes four, richly described case studies of community media organizations
