The Global and the National: media and communications in post-communist Russia

Terhi Rantanen
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers (May 2002)

The Global and the National explores the development of post-Soviet media and communications in Russia, a newly globalised environment following radical social change. Unique empirical research on new communications technologies, news agencies, television, and advertising in Russia shows how the experience and effects of globalisation, which initially played a liberating role in the downfall of communism, are being transformed by the reassertion of the national. With this book, Terhi Rantanen challenges conventional assumptions about globalisation and contributes to a better understanding of its theoretical base, as well as its effects on non-Western countries.
