International Political Economy and Mass Communication in Chile: National Intellectuals and Transnational Hegemony (International Political Economy)by Matt Davies
Synopses & Reviews
This book develops an approach to international political economy that focuses on culture. It examines Chilean communication scholarship as it developed under shifting political regimes and changing international political economic relations. Also examined is the importance of agency and culture in the political processes of building and challenging transnational hegemony, emphasizing the role of intellectuals.
Book News Annotation:
Davies (political science, Behrend College, Pennsylvania State U.-Erie) discusses how Chilean-based media intellectuals, many based in leading universities, sought to make sense of national cultural development in the context of the global political economy from the late 1950s to the early 1990s. The conclusion evaluates communication scholarship after the transition to civilian rule, synthesizing observations on the relations between the order of the international political economy, the development of the social sciences, and the possibilities for democratic politics.
