Reviews

'This valuable anthology gathers authors from many lands to describe how radio is growing and changing around the world. No matter the language or the programming, radio broadcasting remains a vibrant medium early in the 21st century. This anthology of scholarly papers underlines the many ways radio serves its listeners in both developed and developing nations. Despite a variety of competitors, radio is more than holding its own - not bad as the medium approaches its 100th birthday!'

- Christopher H. Sterling, George Washington University, USA

'This book on international radio covers it all, from soup to nuts. It is both historical and contemporary. Anyone who teaches international communication, or includes this topic in a broader course, will want to have this book and consider it for student reading.'

- Robert S. Fortner, American University in Bulgaria

'This work is an excellent reference on radio as it is known around the world; it has a clear organization and topics are easy to locate by means of a useful index. The book would be well suited as a text for a university course on comparative media or international broadcasting.'

- Drew McDaniel, Journal of Radio & Audio Media, 2014.
