This book is an invaluable guide to the changes brought about by recent media revolutions in the geographical area stretching from Eastern Europe to Turkey and beyond. After three theoretical texts on the Idea of Europe, Post-Marxism and the new visual society, the essays that follow contain individual cases studies. Thus, the role of political advertising in northern Greece is discussed, as are the relationship between media and diaspora, the future of Public Service Broadcasting in Macedonia, the blogging phenomenon, media ownership in Central Europe and the problems of journalistic freedom in Turkey. For the first time, this book interrelates these topics geographically, thus creating a patchwork quilt of social change mirrored in the respective national media spheres. It is a must read for students and practitioners of journalism, of cultural and media studies and anybody trying to understand the mediated geopolitics of this part of Europe and its bordering regions.
