Description

This volume is devoted to understanding the politics in, and of, communication. The contributors explore the political terrain on which various processes of communication unfold, as well as investigating the political configurations of communication processes. Through conceptual articulations, theoretical constructs and empirical data, the volume addresses such questions as: how fruitful is communication as a concept? What types of insights does it yield? and Do these insights emanate from academic engagements or from practices within society? ** Communication Processes Volume 2: Domination and Appropriation ** Bernard Bel et al Cloth (0-7619-3446-4) available March 2006
