Rather than guiding the discussion by geography, types of media, or traditional separations of power and resistance, Chakravartty (communication, University of Massachusetts-Amherst) and Zhao (global communication, Simon Fraser University, Canada) take a new approach toward understanding the uneven flows of global communication (broadly defined here to include production, circulation, and consumption). They examine political economic power and communication in relation to historically specific encounters with modernity, underscoring a more complex understanding of the state, market, and civil society than the one that is conventionally conceptualized in media studies. Instead of soliciting work from senior scholars, the editors have deliberately selected a group of international, racially, and linguistically diverse junior and mid-career scholars. Individual chapters deal with themes related to the state and communication politics in multiple modernities, embedded markets and cultural transformations, and civil society and multiple publics. Some topics discussed include Western funding and Internet development in the shrinking Palestinian state, Arab reality TV, and the media's role in securing neoliberal hegemony in Singapore.
