BOOK: Media in BRICS countries

A new book in the Routledge series Internationalizing Media Studies has been published. The volume, titled Mapping BRICS Media, is a comparative study of the media landscape in Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. The authors suggest that the so-called “rise of the rest” poses a challenge to the Western media systems.

The book is edited by Kaarle Nordenstreng of University of Tampere, and Daya Kishan Thussu of University of Westminster in London.
