Media and Participation: A site of ideological-democratic struggle
by Nico Carpentier
Publisher: Intellect Ltd 2011
Number of pages: 408
This book looks at participation as a structurally unstable concept and as the object of a political-ideological struggle that makes it oscillate between minimalist and maximalist versions. This struggle is analysed in theoretical reflections in five fields (democracy, arts, development, spatial planning and media) and in eight different cases of media practice.
