Political Communication and Democracy provides a wide-ranging and inclusive study of political communications that uses current political events and debates to illustrate its arguments. Looking beyond the narrow view that political communication concerns only the media and spin doctors, Gary Rawnsley examines the subject in its myriad forms: political parties and pressure groups as a way by which people join together, referendums, public opinion and how communications contribute to the process of democratization around the world.

In Westeuropa verändert die Dominanz der Massenmedien die Strukturen und Strategien der etablierten politischen Parteien. Für Ostmitteleuropa wurde das Phänomen der Medialisierung bisher kaum untersucht. Die Studie zeigt, dass die Parteien in einer jungen Demokratie wie Polen noch stärker auf die Medien ausgerichtet sind: Sie bilden kaum lokale Strukturen aus, setzen auf Personalisierung und Skandalisierung und versuchen zugleich immer wieder, politischen Einfluss auf Presse und Rundfunk geltend zu machen.

The revolutions of 1989 swept away Eastern Europe's communist governments and created expectations on the part of many observers that post-communist media would lead the liberated societies in establishing and embracing democratic political cultures. Peter Gross finds that it was utopian to hold such expectations of the media in societies in transition. On the one hand, those countries' media professionals had all learned their jobs under the communist regimes and could not instantly transform themselves into guides for a politically enabled populace, Gross argues. On the other hand, newcomers to the media world, even those who were notable literary figures, viewed themselves as social and political leaders rather than mere informers and facilitators of the resocialization required to form new democracies. The news media have remained highly politicized and partisan. So how are the media, civil society, and political culture related in societies in transition? And can changes in these relationships be anticipated? To address these questions, Entangled Evolutions examines media in post-1989 Eastern Europe. It studies the effects of privatization of the media, journalists' relations to political figures, institutional structures such as media laws, professional journalistic culture, and the media's relation to their market. Sources include interviews with journalists and politicians, sociological and political data from national surveys, and media audience studies.

How has mass communication evolved in Latin America? How has the political climate in that region shaped the role of the mass media? What are the special challenges facing this turbulent area? In Communication in Latin America, Richard Cole has assembled a selection of articles that explores these issues, with a special emphasis on journalism, given the traditional strength of the press in Latin America. The twelve essayswritten exclusively for this publication - examine either an aspect of the mass media in the region or the media in a particular country during a number of stages of its political development. Communication in Latin America opens with an overview of the state of mass communication in the entire region. Articles in the first part of the volume focus on topics such as the changing role of women in the media and the usefulness of propaganda in effecting political change. Essays in the second section discuss situations in individual countries, including freedom of the press in Mexico and Chile and the Argentine media's struggle to define their role under the new democratic government. Professor Cole concludes with a forecast of the future of mass communication in Latin America.
