A political history of television in Bangladesh
Faculty of Education and Arts
School of Communication and Arts
The book is a collection of essays that provide an in-depth understanding of the changing Bangladesh mediascape. The essays focus on, respectively, specific media (television, radio, film, the press and photography), policy issues and the challenge of the new media to governance in an emerging and developing nation faced with innumerable economic, social and physical problems. The book deliberately avoids the development communication model and argues that market forces rather than planned state interventions will contribute to a more equitable communication environment for Bangladesh.
