Introduced by Daniel C. Hallin and Paolo Mancini, the book takes
stock of twenty years of exiting transformation of east European
media systems after the collapse of communism in 1989-an explicit,
comparative, academic discussion of media politics.Leading
researchers from different regions of Europe and the United States
address five major interrelated themes: 1) how ideological and
normative constructs gave way to empirical systematic comparative
work in media research; 2) the role of foreign media groups in
post-communist regions and the effects of ownership in terms of
impacts on media freedom; 3) the various dimensions of the
relationship between mass media and political systems in a
comparative perspective; 4) professionalization of journalism in
different political cultures-autonomy of journalists, professional
norms and practices, political instrumentalization and the
commercialization of the media; 5) the role of state intervention
in media systems.
