|Summary:||"This is the first in a series of volumes examing different dimensions of media and culture in small nations. Whether at a local, national or international level, radio has played and continues to play a key role in nurturing or denying - even destroying - people's sense of 'belonging' to a particular community. Typically, radio has been used for purposes of propaganda and as a means of forging national identity both at home and also further afield in the case of colonial expoloits. Drawing on examples for four models, this volume provides an [sic] historical and contemporary overview of radio in a number of small nations, and proposes a stimulating discussion on the role radio has played in a variety of nation contents worldwide." -- Taken from back cover of volume. |
