Communication and Cultural Domination.
Schiller, Herbert I.
Communications and the flow of messages and imagery within and between nations--especially between developed and dominated states--have assumed a special significance in the years since the second World War. During this period, although more than 90 countries have achieved political independence, at least two-thirds of the world's nations have been experiencing economic helplessness and dependency. This book describes the process of cultural domination, some of the elements that constitute it, and the mechanisms of its operation and extension. The book also offers observations on possible means of resisting this cultural domination and discusses national communications policies. An afterword focuses on communications policies of reform and counterrevolution in Chile. (JM)
