Thussu's account of war as infotainment, the Bollywoodization of news and the emergence of a global infotainment sphere, is as compelling as it is alarming. This is a significant and essential book for anyone interested in exploring the connections between news journalism, informed citizenship and democracy.
Thussu brings to this project the passion for news of a socially committed former journalist, the political economy of his international relations education and a formidable assembly of global detail, examining the recent explosion of 'infotainment'.
A very easy to follow text although I feel it would be better served as a sumplimentary taxt for the course I am teaching currently
adopted text book. Clear and easy to follow.
Interesting insights into the modern journlaism world. Used to draw attention to students critique of media and how stories are told.
I am actually using Thussu's book right now in a course called Globalization. It fits nicely in that course, though I won't have student reactions for a while yet. I'll still consider it for the Social Life of media course.
