The new edition of this major work offers a comprehensive analysis of international communication systems and the global flow of information. Hamid Mowlana places the analysis of global mass media and other forms of communication within a critical overview of international and intercultural relations.



Extensively rewritten and revised, Global Information and World Communication deals with the phenomenon of global information flow in all contexts - political, economic, cultural, technological, legal and professional. Mowlana illustrates how different communication strategies and systems have contributed to the creation of powerful interests and have altered the global scene. He takes into account recent events and shows how these have challenged basic assumptions and theories, enabling the debate about communication and world society to embrace broader concepts of world politics, information economy, cultural ecology and international development.

`Benefitting from more than three decades of intense international communication study, Mowlana has systematically chosen theories, approaches and findings from many academic disciplines; carefully synthesized and analyzed their major tenets and implications; and neatly packaged them in one of the most comprehensive, insightful, and critically prescriptive volumes in the burgeoning field. The author has expanded the discourse, covering a wider swath than the traditional analyses of mass media messages and communication technologies; he includes global dimensions of news and views, broadcasting, culture industries , transborder data flows, travel and tourism, intercultural communication, information technology, communication and development, and research. Mowlana favors enumeration of items, likes to design his own figures and models, and cannot resist giving solutions for international communication dilemmas. He defines terms precisely, regularly points out areas needing further research, and suggests ways the studies can be approached. A refreshing relief from the glut of contemporary uncritical work, this is the book for international communication courses, the one boo, all those enamored with, or otherwise affected by, the so-called "communication revolution" should read' - Choice
