Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Shows how dominant commercial media practices secure a hold among and affect diverse national cultures.

When commercial media practices are insinuated into local cultures, existing cultural and media practices are often displaced and social inequalities are exacerbated—sometimes with the consent of consumers, but frequently confronting organized proponents. The Globalization of Corporate Media Hegemony provides case studies from five continents—from government-promoted telecommunications programs and technologies in Canada and Britain, MTV Asia's call-in request lines, and the pan-Latin ideology of a Mexican television variety show, to Islamic pop radio in Turkey, commercial radio in Africa, a "Millionaire" game show in India, and Hollywood's muted influence on Korean cinema, among others. Each case offers new insight into the particulars of an expanding corporate hegemony and together they invite the conversation on media globalization to consider the dynamics of class conflict and negotiation as an analytical perspective having prescriptive potential.

“Artz and Kamalipour … bring together an impressive range of articles focusing on three contested concepts: globalization, media hegemony and class. A major asset of the book is its engagement with structural shifts in appropriating communication resources, reorientation of media policies towards the market, and how these shifts have been justified and legitimized through the ideology of consumerism across the world.” — Global Media and Communication

"This book will become one of the important texts in the field of communication studies. Hegemony and globalization are topics that continue to expand in importance and this book provides an excellent global view of these concepts." — Rick Rockwell, American University
