This book examines the fate of post-Soviet press freedom and
media culture in the context of the growing impact of
globalisation. To understand the complicated situation that has
arisen with respect to these issues in post-Soviet space is
impossible without collaboration between political scientists,
sociologists, cultural analysts, media studies researchers and
media practitioners. The book is one of the first attempts to
bridge the gaps between political and cultural studies approaches,
between textual analysis and audience research, as well as between
practitioner-led and scholarly approaches to the post-Soviet media
The cumulative impact of the essays contained in this section is to
reinforce the intuition which inspired it: that the post-Soviet
media remain a highly heterogeneous, complex and dynamic field for
investigation. With contributions from scholars and journalists
across Europe (including the former Soviet Union), the collection
addresses such issues as censorship and elections, the legacy of
the Soviet past, terrorism and the media, the post-Soviet business
press, advertising and nation building, official press discourse
and entrepreneurship, and global formats on Russian television.
