Academy for Educational Development, Washington, DC.
The Academy for Educational Development (AED) has been in the social marketing, communication, and participation business for some 40 years. This book profiles 82 projects carried out in the 1960s and 1970s in countries around the world. These projects were researched and documented by AED under its Clearinghouse on Development Communication. It is hoped that the book's profiles of extraordinary early experiments with social marketing, mass media, interactive radio, and participation might benefit a new generation of communication professionals. Profiles in the book describe applications to fields as diverse as basic education, child survival, family planning, agriculture, community organizing, and participatory media. The book opens with an easy-to-read index and a table of contents. Synopses of each project follow, providing a description, results, facts of note, references, target audience, objectives, media, donors/sponsors, duration, and contacts. (BT)
