Summary
The media's role as a mechanism of control throughout Latin America has become increasingly sophisticated. Many repressive elements of the dictatorship periods have remained in place or have mutated into more subtle means of censorship and control. Media owners and political elites are more than keen to use the media's increasingly prominent role in framing politics in the region, in order to pursue their own agenda and interests. This book provides a comprehensive and critical overview of some of the most important media systems in Latin America. Drawing on original and critical essays from some of the most prominent authors in the field, the author approaches the subject with a country-by-country analysis, exploring the most relevant aspects of the media in each society. The essays cover: media history; organisation; the interrelationship of the media and the state; media regulation and policy and ownership; broadcast media; and, film, music, advertising and digital media. "The Media in Latin America" is valuable reading for students of media and journalism studies
