Rich Media, Poor Democracy
Communication Politics in Dubious TimesBook - 2015
First published to great acclaim in 2000, Rich Media, Poor Democracy is Robert W. McChesney's magnum opus. Called 'a rich, penetrating study' by Noam Chomsky, the book is a meticulously researched exposition of how media and communication empires are threatening effective democratic governance. McChesney lays out his vision for what a truly democratic society might look like, offering compelling suggestions for how the media can be reformed as part of a broader program of democratic renewal. This new edition includes a major new preface by McChesney.
