This second edition of Communication for Development in the Third World builds on the framework provided by the earlier edition. It is updated to include the literature on development and communications from the 1990s which is integrated with the theory and practice of development communication.

Review from the First Edition:

`the book's worthiness as an excellent decade-by-decade analysis of the theory and practice of DC by a Third World scholar who has not only learnt about problems of development from books but has experienced them. No school is better than the school of life. The book is an excellent study.... This reviewer very strongly recommends Communication for Development in the Third World as a required textbook for all students of development communication and as useful reading for journalism/mass communication students, particularly those doing theories of mass communication. The book should also prove very useful for students outside journalism/mass communication, especially those doing development or related subjects.' - Media Development
