This book is a critical study of the political economy of communications in India. It explores the ways in which contexts, policies and processes at national and international levels shape media structures and studies how a political economy-inspired approach can be used to understand both media dominance and resistance.The author explores aspects of colonial political economy and how it has shaped the structure of media in India and in many other countries. It also discusses liberalisation, privatisation and media politics in contemporary India. Divided into three sections-structures, means and resistance-the chapters focus on both the electronic and the print media.The book would interest students and researchers of Indian media history, international communication, media and politics, sociology and political economy.
