Review quote

ADVANCE PRAISE "Media Power in Central America is unique in the field, very readable, and tells an exciting story about the relationship between strong commercial media and authoritarian regimes. Rockwell and Janus provide a valuable description and analysis of the history, politics, culture, and economics of the print and electronic media in the six countries." -- Elizabeth Fox, senior advisor with USAID and the author of Latin American Broadcasting: From Tango to Telenovela
