    Book Description. Media and Democracy addresses key topics and themes in relation to democratic theory, media and technology, comparative media studies, media and history, and the evolution of media research. For example: How does TV entertainment contribute to the democratic life of society? Why are Americans less informed about politics and international affairs than Europeans?   The Media Democracy Festival welcomes campaigners, journalists, researchers, students and citizens to engage in discussions on a range of issues – from challenging bias and confronting racism to building radical alternative platforms for a more pluralist, inclusive and democratic media.

    The book provides a much-needed health warning against the notion that liberal democracy is a natural ally against racism. By insisting that we should stop ‘hyping’ the far right and start challenging it, the book eloquently promotes a full-throttle anti-racism when we need it most.” – Des Freedman. First published to great acclaim in , Rich Media, Poor Democracy is Robert W. McChesney’s magnum opus. Called a “rich, penetrating study” by Noam Chomsky, the book is a meticulously researched exposition of how U.S. media and communication empires are threatening effective democratic governance. What happens when a few conglomerates dominate all major aspects of mass.

    In the final\"section, \"Democracy and New Media,\" Lawrence K. Grossman, Sara B. Ivry, and Andrew C. Gordon consider the implications for democracy of new media technologies. Christopher Dornan concludes the book with a review essay examining recent books on media and democracy.   The way we communicate online evolves and changes shape rapidly. Through research, the building of tools, and bringing together diverse viewpoints and underrepresented voices, we seek to examine, analyze, and address the variety of ways people engage online, the myriad of factors that may influence that engagement (or lack thereof) and to preserve a record for future generations.
