Publication Date 15 Sep 2015
OverviewThis book critically examines directed social change theory and practice and presents a conceptual framework of development communication (devcom) to address inequality and injustice in contemporary contexts. The earlier editions of this book, Communication for Development in the Third World (1991 and 2001), have served as established core texts for courses on development communication throughout the world. This revised and updated edition explores the scholarship and practice of media and communication for development, empowerment, and social justice to individuals and communities around the globe, in the context of increasing globalization. It traces the history of devcom, objectively looks at diverse approaches and their supporters, and provides ideas and models for devcom in early 21st century.
