Sarah Oates gives a detailed examination on a central theme in
political science: the relationship between democracy and the mass
media. This significant book contains a wealth of information and
data, including: public opinion surveys, content analysis of
television news, focus groups and in-depth interviews to examine
why political parties and the mass media failed so spectacularly to
aid in the construction of a democratic system in Russia. The
analysis presents compelling evidence that television helped to
tune out democracy as it served as a tool for leaders rather than a
conduit of information in the service of the electorate or parties.
In addition, focus groups and surveys show that the Russian
audience are often more comfortable with authority rather than
truth in television coverage. Within this framework, this
fascinating work presents the colourful history of parties,
elections and television during one of the most critical eras in
Russian history and captures a particularly significant epoch in
contemporary Russian politics.
