Summary "Over the past 20 years, there has been a marked increase in the numbers and types of electronic media outlets that ethnic minorities largely or totally control and through which they can express themselves. That phenomenon raises the possibility of increased ethnic minority participation in the public sphere. This study examines the nature of that participation in Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and, to a lesser extent, selected nations in Latin America, Africa and Asia." "Presentation of the structures and factors themselves draws upon the author's direct observation of such services in over 20 nations, interviews of service staff and regulatory agency personnel, and various research reports and other literature concerning such services. The author speculates on the extent to which such services promote participation in the public sphere, whether the services have negative as well as positive effects, and what the future may hold for ethnic minority electronic media in an increasingly media-rich multicultural world." "This book will appeal to college and university instructors/researchers and students; anyone active in the management, financing and regulation of ethnic minority electronic media; and those curious to know how ethnic minorities address themselves as well as the broader public through radio, TV, audio/video cassettes and the internet."--BOOK JACKET.
